From the hands of two astute wine businesswomen, Kate Giles (a wine marketer) and Marnie Roberts (winemaker, also of Matriarch and Rogue). Born of a passion for alternative and emerging varieties and the opportune finding of a fantastic parcel of Sangiovese, this #cheekysangioproject (working title) evolved into Dilettante, from the Italian Dilettare: “To delight and to entertain.”
Dilettante Sangiovese 2017$ 24.00 incl. GST
From a single vineyard, fruit is handled as minimally as possible, coaxed to bottle via wild fermentation and raising in old oak, no fining or filtration, and just a dot of sulphur at bottling. Ultra juicy, soft and slurpable, a mid-weight expression with an array of cherry flavours and gentle tannins, absolutely made for pizza and pasta. A fun, widely appealing wine.
