User Reviews for Penfolds Cellar Reserve Sangiovese

Winemaker's Notes:

The heart and soul of the great wines of Tuscany, sangiovese is a relative newcomer to Australia. During the early 1990s, Penfolds' red winemaking team made several unreleased experimental wines, to establish a clear direction of sangiovese style. In the years since, this Italian variety has adapted extremely well to Australian conditions, in part due to the flaxen Barossa landscape, which bares many similarities to the rolling Tuscan countryside. The first commercial vintage was released in 1998 and the wines have continued to improve in definition and character. An exchange visit by Stefano di Blasi from the Italian wine house Antinori - who suggested a number of vinification techniques, including longer maceration on skins - had a profound effect on the style. Nowadays, beautiful Barossa fruit from the Kalimna and Georgiadis vineyards undergoes a wild ferment and long post-ferment maceration, to produce a unique take on this classic variety.
