Balgownie Black Label Sangiovese 2015

Bendigo Sangiovese. Never had one - til now. This comes off vines planted in 1999. Fermented in stainless steel on skins for 24 days and then on lees in six year old barriques for ten months.

Char, black cherry and dried herbs are all up front. The fruit seems a little thin. Some expected acid crunch is rounded out by black tea like tannins,

It goes okay but doesn't wow me, not for that price anyway.

Drink now and for another five years.

87/100
