The Usher and Morgan families selected this mighty grape from Abruzzo in central Italy because of its deep plum colour, firmly structured tannins and perfect late maturation even in our warmer climate. Sometimes confused with Sangiovese from Tuscany, this regal variety excels with rich berry flavours, finely balanced acid and sufficient delicacy to accompany and dish. We match it with crusted lamb racks, seasoned pheasant, rabbit risotto and richly sauced pastas. Rope in a few good friends and you’re done! Cin cin.
