Vigna Cantina Sangiovese 2010

I'm not sold on Sangiovese in the Barossa. In fact I think this variety likes it a bit cooler. The varieties that I think work well in this area are Mataro and Grenache.This wine comes off of 16 year old vines grown in the Moppa and Koonunga Hills. The wine spent 16 month in used French oak before being bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Fulled bodied with the oak coming through on the front palate. The flavours of herbs and dried plums are nice but they fall away. I would love to see savoury characters and plenty of tannin in this wine but I just didn't get it.
