Pizzini Pietra Rossa Sangiovese 2013
This is the new name for Pizzini’s Sangiovese, with ‘Pietra Rossa’ a reference to the vineyard’s red stone. A little Canaiolo in the blend too (authentic!).
Dark ruby with a little purple, this has ferrous tannins and feels really quite grown up, propelled by red berries, bark and a little Italian sausage.
Still sweet red fruited, it’s both generous and tannic, every bit the real Sangio, if a fraction sweet and caramelised to finish. Drink: 2015-2025. Score: 17.7/20, 92/100
Details: 13.8%, Screwcap, $28, Sample
Would I buy it? I’d share a bottle for sure.
