This Eden Valley Cabernet shows inherent aromas of vanilla, cloves and gentle aniseed, amongst dark fruits. Intrinsic leafiness is captured throughout the palate length, within ripe blackberry, black currant, black cherry and cocoa characters. There is a defined moment of black pepper amidst the long arc of superbly ripe tannins.
Rocca di Cispiano is located in the heart of the Chianti Classico region of Tuscany. Named after the Roman soldier that settled in the area, it is now producing some of the finest organically managed Sangiovese we have come across! Third generation winemaker Lorenzo Lepri instils a philosophy of tradition, passion and intuition into the wines we have today. This wine is 100% hand-harvested Sangiovese grown from organically managed vineyards.
Ripe tropical bouquet and great crisp apple/pear flavours with savoury elements and a zesty citrus finish.
