Corbezzolo is an exquisite wine meticulously crafted from a blend of Sangiovese grapes sourced from the company's historic vineyard, rooted in the legacy of 1981.

Thriving on predominantly clayey soils interlaced with limestone, these vines flourish at an elevation of 350 meters above sea level. Hand-harvested with precision, the grapes undergo fermentation in stainless steel for a maximum of 20 days at controlled temperatures. This elixir then gracefully matures in new or second-passage French oak barriques, where the magic of malolactic fermentation unfolds. The culmination of this artistry is a sublime aging in the bottle for an impressive 36 months.

100% Sangiovese here from the family’s oldest vineyard, this was first made back in 1995. The vineyard sits at an altitude of 350 metres. Fermentation is in stainless steel followed by malo in French oak barriques and a considerable period of maturation. None of the oak is new. The name comes from the fact that the vineyard once had corbezzolo trees (also known as strawberry trees – despite producing sweet and edible fruit, not strawberries of course, they are considered a pest in parts of Australia). The wine is a dark maroon colour. We have notes of dry herbs, soy, aniseed, cherries and chocolate. The wine is delicious – ripe, plush, with good acidity and length. A refreshing style of red, which should drink well for the next ten to twelve years. 2019 and 2020, both already bottled, will be the next two releases.

Tasting Profile

Intense ruby red in colour, it releases hints of red fruits in jam, violet, and a light spicy tone on the nose that is confirmed on the palate by a soft and generous flavour, with gentle tannins and a long persistence.
