Grilled salmon fillets with a Balsamic glaze
The wine has an intense bouquet of wild black cherry and mulberries, with anise spice.
A palate that has blood plum, sour cherry and bitter chocolate at its core. The palate flows from the core of fruit, and continues to drive along the palate with excellent length, while supported by fine dusty and savoury tannins.
The fruit for the 2016 Valentino Sangiovese was sourced from the Greenstone vineyard on the eastern side of the Mt Camel ranges. The rich Cambrian soils along with the slope of the vineyard that rises over 100m from the road they are both contributors to the intensity and richness of flavours in the fruit and resulting wine. The 2016 growing season began with steady soaking winter rainfalls provided a good winter season and an excellent start to the growing season. Spring weather was variable during flowering which meant a small Sangiovese fruit set. A warm December, followed by a very dry and hot January and February saw water storages fall significantly whilst maintaining vine health leading up to the critical veraison period. The vines had maintained a very good canopy that functioned well with a small crop of fruit, allowing the vines to achieve fruit with full phenological ripeness. The grapes for the 2016 Valentino Sangiovese was harvested on 3rd March 2016 at 13.8 baume.
