This variety is mostly planted in Italy, luckily the Bottin family are also growing them in Mclaren vale. This wine builds on my palate with layers of intense flavour, perfect with Pizza or savoury food a must try chianti like Italian variety wine - made in Australia - Frank
The 2017 Sangiovese is abundantly fruit driven - sour cherry, red currants and wild exotic forest fruits. This is an exciting wine showing meaty herbs, ironstone and inky dark fruits through the mid palate. This is a real savory style of wine with elegant enveloping texture.
Vigna Bottin has been growing Sangiovese for nearly two decades. It is one of northern Italy's noblest varieties and hails from central Italy, most famously Chianti, Tuscany's iconic wine. They love it as it has proven to be well suited to the warm, maritime climate of the McLaren Vale region as the red fruit flavours have freshness about them with good strong ripe tannins and vibrant acidity which are the key indicators of the variety.
The wine is complex, brooding and dry with a velvety lining running through your palate when tasting. Strong ripe tannins and vibrant acidity; fragrant with cherries, mulberries and strawberries with a background of earthy tones reminiscent of ripe figs, warmed molasses and freshly cracked walnut.

About The Winery
At first just for family and friends, in 2006 Vigna Bottin was born from the Bottin’s estate grown Italian grape varieties. Paolo’s father Anselmo and uncle Ferdinando instilled the skills and passion for viticulture in Paolo at a young age, but it wasn’t until a trip to Italy after many summers tending the vineyards of mainstream varieties that planting Italian grapes in Australian soil became a reality.
The Bottin family have been growing grapes in McLaren Vale since 1970 and in Italy for generations before that. Wines with an Italian spirit are their specialty.
From vineyard to barrel, their favourite Italian varieties thrive in the Mediterranean climate of McLaren Vale, developing into modern, Australian wines.
