A red blend that is fragrant, silky, delicious and ready to drink. Pinot Noir gives this wine spice, drive and tension, Barbera contributes flavours of boysenberry, star anise and nutmeg, the Nebbiolo brings juicy cherry fruit, tannins and structure while the Sangiovese compliments the cherries and adds some savoury notes.
“This wine has the best bits of all three varieties Pinot Noir, Barbera and Nebbiolo. Nebbiolo is the spine, providing a strong core of cherry fruit and a nice amount of tannin. Attached is the blackcurrant, red berry and spice flavours of the Barbera and Pinot Noir takes over the finale providing a luxurious, satin-silk finish. Little Red evolves across the palate as each variety vies for attention. The unconventional set of tannins, courtesy of the blend of varieties, are youthful and grippy. It has a juicy finish with bundles of flavour. This is sure to fly out the Cellar Door this Autumn” Tom Cupitt.
