Mad Dog Sangiovese

Mad Dog wines announces the release of our 2006 Sangiovese. This very limited release is from a small trial planting of 250 vines we have had growing on our property for 10 years. This is the first commercial release of this fruit. We have shoot thinned and bunch thinned this block by hand to get the best wine possible. We are very pleased with the way it has turned out. Our wine making team says:

We affectionately call this wine MAD DOCG (with a silencio ‘C’) after the great savoury reds of Tuscany. It is made from Mad Dog’s 10 year old Valley floor Sangiovese, with yields restricted to well under 2 tonnes. The spice laden, wild cherry fruit character overlays a canvas of well seasoned, top notch French Oak. Should age well over the mid-term but we suggest you catch it while it’s showing all its youthful exuberance.

Because we only have a very limited quantity of this wine, if you would like to get hold of some, please, drop me an email (Kammunz(at) letting me know where you are and I'll let you know how you can get hold of some.
