Cinquecento Sangiovese - 2022

93 Points

What a thoroughly beautiful sangiovese from McLaren Vale. It’s a variety that can sometimes be slightly edgy and willowy without fruit feel. This one nails it. Interesting 50/50 combination of seasoned French and American oak. I think the American oak has contributed to that smooth rounded palate. Lifted red fruits with a spicy black pepper and subtle sage rosemary characters.

93 Points
A sophisticated style of Sangiovese that looks to structure, savouriness, length and a dry, clean finish and, yes, flavour. Impressive. It treats the grape seriously – not always the way with Australian makers – while retaining an essential ripe and peppery Australian-ness. Black cherry, black fruits, bramble, briar, acacia, plum, and background spice are positively lifted by a pepperiness. Savoury oak tannins bring another layer of interest in addition to firmness. Retains the essence of the grape.
