Angullong Fossil Hill Sangiovese 2018

Angullong seems to have developed quite an affinity for these, so called, alternative varieties - though we've considered them that for over a decade now in many cases. However so collectively referred should no detract from the continued success they've had in crafting fine examples across red and white grape varieties, to the point where they are well anticipated  across the tasting bench when the opportunity arises. 

Subtle woodsy spice gives way to a deeper fruit manifestation in the cherry and raspberry spectrum. For that initial brightness is settles back into a more savoury rhythm. A touch of brighter acidity brings things back into focus, providing a guiding line across the finish. 

Powdery tannin leaves a decent conclusion. Interestingly it was one I preferred on its own, my chosen food pairing of creamy pork and fennel pasta not providing the best match on this occasion. 92
