Angullong 2021 Fossil Hill Sangiovese

Take an Australian family winery, a classic Italian grape variety and a Canadian-born winemaker and you have a winning combination. Angullong is a family owned operation outside Orange in the Central West of New South Wales, located about 350km west of Sydney. The Crossing family has planted a range of Italian grape varieties, including sangiovese, which is the grape used in Tuscany's renowned Chiantis. Winemaker Jeff Byrne has crafted a delightful medium-bodied red here, with an appealing balance between blue fruit flavours and savoury/herbal/deli notes. There's a lovely softeness on the finish and this would pair brilliantly with most pasta and pizza dishes. $30.
