Hannibal stands alone by its design and presentation as an individualistic blend of classic Italian and French varieties. In short the name portrays the link between France and Italy with Hannibal the conqueror’s symbolism of the elephants crossing the Alps (as Africa’s association of origin and connection to this wine). Worldly recognized and respected for its commanding taste profile, which is best described as a symphony of flavours. It is both bold and complex with notable back-palate structure while it’s collection of different varieties present a harmonious flavour balance. The colour is marvellously crimson and bright. The composition represents Sangiovese at 39% while the Pinot noir portion is 35%. The remaining 26% is a mix of cultivars consisting of Nebbiolo 10%, Shiraz 9%, Barbera 4% and Mouvedre 3%. Showing both power and finesse it gives way to gentle flavours of black cherry, spice and strawberry. While very approachable at an early age it will mature handsomely over many years ahead!
