Cosa Nostra “iL Capo” Blend 2016


Brightly structured with soft, savoury appeal. It has Sangiovese leathery fresh red fruits with herbal nero d’avola concentration & depth along with fresh (yet structured) red berries & spices all blend into what I think is a great BBq wine. Don’t be shy, it’s perfect with more hearty dishes & stews too. A classic “food” wine. Drink to 2020

89 Poiints, Campbell Mattinson, Halliday’s Wine Companion, “Blend of sangiovese, nero d’Avola and barbera. Game, raisins, red cherries and gum leaves. It’s a light, juicy, uncomplicated red, almost as stylishly presented (in the glass) as it is packaged. Casual with class.”

More Information

In 2012 Husband and wife team Adrian and Rebecca Santolin were able to step out independently to do things their way. A relatively young duo in an age old practice, Adrian is head winemaker while wife Rebecca manages the business and creative.

Playing on tradition, Adrian’s winemaking style is focused on minimal intervention in order to showcase the region and variety in its purest form. “Minimal intervention makes for a complex wine with great finesse. It makes the varietal, regional and vineyard characters of a wine stand out.”

Their ethos is to keep it simple. A great wine starts with great fruit. Sourcing premium, high quality grapes, they do very little to them in the winery in order to maintain the unique vineyard and regional characters of each variety.

Utilising wild fermentation and kept for up to 12 months in a selection of French oak barrels, their small batch, handcrafted wines are all made from select single vineyard sites.
