NEW! Alpha Box and Dice 'Blood of Jupiter' Sangiovese Cabernet Sauvignon, McLaren Vale, Australia 2015

24.95

Another stunning wine from the most exciting outfit in Australian wine right now, Alpha Box & Dice. It's a blend of the Italian variety, Sangiovese (think Brunello di Montalcino, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Chianti Classico) with Cabernet Sauvignon (think Bordeaux, Napa, Margaret River). The aromas are Wowza! It's dripping in Italian glamour and opulence, as if made from jewels not fruit, with glossy plums and cherries (that's the Sangiovese coming forward), but there's a deep, minty cassis flavour coming through from the Cabernet Sauvignon too, which gives the wine a rich, brooding quality. It's just a joy to drink, a hedonistic blend of two noble grape varieties that are tried and tested bedfellows (think Tignanello), other than in Montalcino. Definitely not in Montalcino. 14.6% alc. Drink now-2025.

NB The wine's name, 'Blood of Jupiter, is a translation of the word Sangiovese.
