Mitolo 7th Son Grenache Shiraz Sagrantino 2018
This is an unusual blend but it absolutely sings thanks to the combination of plush fruit from grenache and shiraz with the rustic flair of sagrantino.
The wine is deeply coloured and flavoured with expressive fruits – blackberry, baked earth and dark cherry, all well integrated with sweet oak. The palate is then full-bodied and power-packed; luscious fruit kept in check by leathery complexity and a slight acid kick before a long and supple finish. A great drink now and over the next five years or so.
