Il Taglio means 'the cut' or 'the blend' in Italian. For this wine we wanted to showcase the best of our Mediterranean varieties, 'those which have made the cut'. Our 2013 “taglio” is a blend of Shiraz (36%), Nebbiolo (34%), Grenache (14%) Barbera (6%) Sangiovese (6%) and Mourvedre (3%). Each parcel was kept separate, in a mix of old and new oak, until the final moments when meticulous blending sessions were carried out to ensure just the right proportion of each was used to make the best wine possible.
TASTING NOTES: It is a spicy and herbaceous food wine, with savoury notes of thyme and black pepper underpinned with sweet florals and complex tarry, blackberry characters. The wine exhibits the distinct tannins and excellent structure of these less common varieties with grace and harmony.
SUGGESTED FOODS: Slow cooked meats such as osso bucco and slow roasted lamb.
