2012 Cilento Sangiovese

“My Great Grandfather Joseph Cilento immigrated to Australia in the late 1800’s and with my love of Italy, its wines, food and culture with the fond memories of many vintages working there, I offer this tribute to my Italian heritage.”Geoff Merrill


Wine Reviews:

95 points -Ned Goodwin (Australian Wine Companion)

“Frisky, edgy, precise grape-skin pucker - are all Sangiovese. Bitter coffee American oak tannins, too. Thanks to their guidance, flavours of ripe cherry, tomato bush, anise and sassafras are chaperoned across a voluptuous palate and splayed into a long, bracing finish.” 

Top In Class (Gold Medal)- Winestate Magazine

“Very good colour for its age. Has intense concentration of black cherry pastille-like fruitcharacters. Loads of quality oak, leathery notes, hints of coffee and great ‘polished’ tannins.”
