Zonte’s Footstep Canto Montelpulciano Sangiovese 2021


The grapes used for the Canto seem to vary from vintage to vintage. This time, a couple of Italians provide their expression of life on the Fleurieu Peninsula. The colour here is a soft but lively red. Earthy notes, roast meats, red fruits, tomato bush topped by dry herbs and spices. Quite firm tannins and decent length suggest this has a future as the intensity lingers and is maintained for the full journey. Drink for six to eight years if needed.
