Il Briccone (The Rogue) is a blend of the Sangiovese grape and Shiraz from one of my favourite Australian wineries, Primo Estate, courtesy of Joe Grilli. Sangiovese is of course more commonly associated with Italian wines and particularly Chianti giving a distinctive fruity acidity and Shiraz is the personification of Australia's McLaren Vale.
Fermented Grape tasting notes
Plum, black cherry and blackcurrant on the palate with pepper and herby notes with a little extra acidity than a standard McLaren Vale Shiraz courtesy of the Sangiovese. Another very enjoyable wine from Primo.
