|Grapes||Mourvèdre, Barbera, Nebbiolo, Sangiovese, Pinot Noir|
What a cool red. Complex and firm with brightness and finesse. Full to medium body, ultra-fine tannins and a long, long finish. Hints of vanilla and spice. This is a blend of 52% sangivovese, 17% pinot noir, 15% nebbiolo, 8% mourvèdre, 6% syrah and 2% barbera. Aged from 10 to 16 months in wood and then blended before bottling. Drink now and enjoy.

This wine never fails to amaze customers. It offers great subtlety, style and freshness from such an original blend of grapes: Sangiovese, Pinot Noir, Nebbiolo, Barbera, Shiraz and Mourvèdre. It's named after the General who drove a team of Afraican elephants over the Alps to attack Rome - NOT the other one!
The Wine Merchant (Sep 2015)
Superbly smooth with lots of leather, ending in a harmonious velvety finish. Flavours of wild berries, black cherry and spicy plum all combine to present this delicious wine.
Delicious with red grilled meat and Italian dishes.
Winemaker's notes (Aug 2015)
An odd mix of Sangiovese, Pinot Noir, Nebbiolo, Mourvèdre, Barbera and others, but it really works. Smooth, wild berry and plum fruit with touches of cream and spice. Serious, well-made wine.
