Appearance: Vibrant and deep ruby red.

Aroma: Savoury aromas of cranberry and sour cherry are counterpoised by sweet and supple red berry fruits then seasoned with dusty fruit tannin and oak spice.

Palate: The cherry and berry fruit leather texture and concentration on the front palate is focused by the defining, chewy grape tannins of Sangiovese. In time the wine will unfold as the tannins soften and the fruits blossom.

Food Ideas: Capretto, BBQ Lamb, Pizza or Parmigiano-Reggiano

Cellaring: 8 years plus and best from 2010 to 2016.

The original 'premium exotic' and the first red wine made under the Stella Bella brand.

This blend of the esteemed and traditional grape of Tuscany and Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon, brings into being, a wine of grape contrast.

As a young wine, the savoury dry cherry fruit and chunky tannins of Sangiovese juxtapose the sweet red berries and long, fine tannins of Cabernet Sauvignon.

With time these components meld in a 'bricks and mortar'' fashion - more heterogeneous than homogenous yet supple in structure, rich in fruits and contrasts.

Grape: 80% Sangiovese, 20 % Cabernet.

Limited stock.
