We like our rosé fresh and lively – which is why it’s based on Sangiovese… famed for its crisp acidity and bright aromas and flavours.
|Winemaker's Notes||A decade ago, fresh young reds were rare, and rarely taken seriously. These days they are more common, and critics pay much more attention! We are not after attention per se; our aim is to take the best of Sangiovese - always the core of ‘The Mongrel’ - and build on it, in a perfumed, savoury, unchallenging style: fresh, bright and lively!|
|Drink||Now through the next two years|
|Bouquet||A fruity-earthy mix of tar, raspberry, and maple syrup.|
|Palate||A supple textured, muscular palate of length and mid-weight. The intense perfume ‘blooms’ across the palate. Crunchy. Shiny polished leather.|
|Food Match||A simple pasta e polpette (meat-balls) dish with grated parmesan and fresh parsley. In fact any rich, tomato-based dish will be a perfect match!|
