Castagna 2016 Un Segreto (Sangiovese-Syrah)

“…this blend of Sangiovese with some spicy, fragrant Beechworth Shiraz is exactly the kind of wine that will take Australia into the next phase of international acclaim.”  Penguin Wine Guide



The harmony created by the marrying of Sangiovese and Syrah create a unique wine. The nose is of exotic spice; tar over black cherry, cedar wood and earthy extract with notes of fresh rich humus, turmeric, graphite, with beautiful red fruit. The palate is fine and long with an earthy, black-fruited impact and textural richness coming from the fine, beautifully chiselled tannins.

Overall it is dry and savoury with lovely earthy elements, deliciously rich, yet avoiding sweetness.
