Didi Sangiovese 2012
What this possesses is pure flavours of wild herbs, crushed cranberries, cinnamon and dried winter leaves. The intake is sweet but from the mid-palate it is all savoury with the palate weight sitting right in the medium bodied end of the scale. Tom has managed to deliver the illusion of easy flavour but on closer look there is a huge amount of complexity and depth. What this doesn’t have is the massive tannin structure like the Italian versions. Does that matter? Not really but I would like to see more tannin. The wine is still in the top few in Australia so go hard.
