Stella Bella 2012 Sangiovese Cabernet

When it first debuted, this was an unorthodox blend of Italian varietal and Margaret River staple but this West Australian take on Super Tuscans has now long been a favourite under this label. It comes up trumps in the taste stakes, in this vintage producing a wine that offers both the savoury and undergrowth characters of the Italian variety combined with the sweet dark berry fruit and structured tannins of cabernet. It is a most successful coupling, with the end result a red wine of real personality - and extremely food friendly. $30.
