“leaps from the glass with exuberance” – Chrismont La Zona Sangiovese 2013

“This was one of the star wines at the recent 21st Century Vino expo in Melbourne, a celebration of alternative grape varieties and the diversity of the Australian wine industry. Arnie Pizzini from Chrismont is one of a number of producers starring with Italian grapes in the King Valley and this just leaps from the glass with its exuberance. It is, dark, intense, savoury, herbal and quite tannic, but I loved it as a potential partner for rich pasta dishes, or maybe lamb shanks.” Winsor Dobbin, The Examiner, June 2015
