La Prova Rosso 2015
A blend of Sangiovese, Nero d’Avola, Lagrein and Primitivo = succulent yet savoury.
Sangiovese (42%) - Amadio Vineyard, Kersbrook, Adelaide Hills, Nero d’Avola (39%) - Ricca Terra Farms, Barmera, Riverland, Lagrein (13%) – Mt Crawford, Barossa Valley, Primitivo (6%) – Peechabella Vineyard, Langhorne Creek
Three small parcels of fruit, idyllically matched to their vineyard, fermented separately and blended prior to bottling have combined to give up a succulent and delicious wine.
The varieties intertwine well with each other, finding synergy rather than individuality, but looking contemplatively you can see the blue fruits and structure of Lagrein, the fragrance and savoury grip of Sangiovese, rounded out by the soft and juicy, crowd pleasing Nero d’Avola with the Primitivo bringing a dash of opulence to the table.
