Sultry sangiovese

Tar & Roses Sangiovese 2016, Heathcote, AUD $24

The colour is deep and youthful, the aromas suggest dried herbs, dried cherry and fresh earth with floral high notes: very attractive and typical of the grape. It’s intense and bright in the mouth, lean and elegant with lively acidity adding to a firm backbone. A classy wine. (Screwcap)
