Altero 2018 Sangiovese from Fleurieu Peninsula

Altero 2018 Sangiovese from Fleurieu PeninsulaI love spaghetti bolognese night, especially when Mr. Spittoon cooks 😉

It also means a night for red wine in stemless glasses, as we like to pretend we’re in Italy. If only!!

After receiving this sample of Altero 2018 Sangiovese from Fleurieu Peninsula (SA) recently, I knew it was was destined for Spag Bol night. Thank you Cellarmasters!

If you didn’t see my recent post about Altero, it’s a new range from winemaker Mike Farmilo. As he describes on the back label:

An explorative collection of wines created from alternative grape varietals. Built to challenge your palate, these wines are packed with soul and complexities like no other”.

Here’s what Mr. Spittoon and I thought:

It’s a pretty ruby red shade in the glass. On the nose, it’s a cherry bomb, full of fresh vibrant fruit. In the mouth, those juicy cherries follow through from the nose and are laced with a hint of spice, tea leaves and a lick of strawberry. A delicious match with our good old spag bol.

And only $15 by the bottle in a case!

All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!
