Tintilla Estate Rosato di Jupiter Sangiovese 2015

This is a great little drink; a Sangiovese Rosé made from vines planted in the mid 90's. A small portion was barrel fermented for the first time this vintage to increase the complexity. I've never tasted the previous vintages but what I see here is the business.

Aromas of cranberries, raspberry rope and red fruits shift to a delivery which has good drive and weight. The textural component hits the spot and a shimmy of spice rattles through the core leading to a long and satisfying finish. Not overly dry but quite moreish. A dab of sweetness at the death is a neat touch.

Barbecues, burgers, tacos and sunshine will all be at home with this in hand.

Find on premise predominantly in Sydney, online or at the cellar door.

Drink now.

Very good.
