Originally a fruit farm, the company in 1919 directed its efforts to the wine market, planting its own vineyards and producing wine. Under current stewardship of brothers Cristian and Andrea Tombacco recent implementations encompass a sophisticated bottling and research plant, to assist high quality wines at sensible price points.
Piantaferro Intrigo Negroamaro 2019$ 25.00 incl. GST
A fistful of fruit from southern Italy here, Negroamaro transalting as ‘the bitter black one’. From vineyards around different provinces of Puglia, a satisfyingly rich and rounded red.
Intense deep ruby red in colour, leads with mature black berry fruits and spices, coffee and cinnamon on the nose. Full bodied and rounded in the mouth with an earthy richness with abundant plum, prune and dark chocolate backed with a scattering of broad tannins to give texture.
Available November 2020.
Winter 2021 Mixed Dozenincl. GST
Leaning towards reds here, we’re running the spectrum from juiciness courtesy of 22 Degree Halo, to mid week quaffers in Baron Léopold’s delicious Bordeaux red. We’ve some bright Italian flavours through Insieme Primitivo, Intrigo Negroamaro and Greenstone’s excellent 2017 Sangiovese release, plus a couple of lovely fireside contenders in Schwarz Meta Shiraz and Lenton Brae Lady Douglas Cabernet.
The occasional moment calls for something other than red, so a Montfin rosé is perfect for when you’re eating spicy, and the Brackenwood Riesling and Lenton Brae Chardonnay both nicely textured and not out of place in these cooler months.
Full price of this dozen is $330. We’re offering it at $265 with free delivery, a saving of 20%.
