Pizzini's drinking Sangiovese is exactly that, a delicious drink. 

Made with Sangiovese grapes from the King Valley that are picked ripe, yet not overripe, the flavours all about bright red fruits and with meaty edges. In other words, authentic, but not hard going, Sangiovese, that is so approachable.

Sangiovese for Pinot drinkers.

Expert Reviews

91 Points - Campbell Mattinson - The Wine FrontNonna Gisella Sangiovese has found its feet. Bright, light, perfumed and inviting. Just enough firmness too. This is a lovely sangiovese to drink. Pretty with cherries and assorted berries, alive with spice, herbal in a floral way and satisfying through the finish. Bistro wine par excellence. Any table, any time.

How's it taste?

Named after Alfred's grandmother, this is a medium bodied wine - warm and humble just like its namesake. Aromas of lightly spiced plums and cherries lead to hints of chocolate, leather and lovely savoury characters. The palate is generous and full flavoured with good length, soft tannins and flavours of plums and cherries.

How was it made?

King Valley Sangiovese fruit, matured in half oak, half stainless steel with very little new oak.

Who made it?

Alfredo and Katrina Pizzini built Pizzini Wines based on their passions and their commitment to family and Pizzini’s Italian heritage. Their winemaking dream began in 1978 when they planted their first vines, then in 1994 their first wine under the Pizzini label was produced.

Today their four adult children Natalie, Joel, Carlo and Nicole all work in the business alongside Alfredo and Katrina, with Joel taking the reins as chief winemaker.
