Miche­lini Wines 2016 San­giovese

Around $22

Alpine Observer - - Regional Extra - WITH ANITA McPHERSON

HAV­ING en­joyed one of the cold­est win­ters and best ski sea­sons of all time, the Alpine Val­ley has been the place to be over the last few months.

It has al­ways been a spec­tac­u­lar re­gion to visit if you want to see how the sea­sons change and this year those ver­dant val­leys and snow- capped moun­tains could be en­joyed all the way into spring.

It was so cold this year I’ve been re­luc­tant to let go of hearty win­ter soups and slow- cooked stews and have favoured hot roast veg­eta­bles ev­ery time over salad.

But it’s time to tran­si­tion and a pip­ing hot pizza topped with sausage, cap­sicum and mush­rooms, ac­com­pa­nied by Miche­lini Wines San­giovese, is help­ing me do it.

This is a wine per­fectly suited to en­joy­ing with food in­clud­ing meats and any­thing with a lit­tle spice.

It has a bur­nished red colour; ex­ud­ing deep savoury aro­mas of spicy plum, cherry and to­bacco.

There is more of that plum fruit in the flavour but it’s com­plex and firmly savoury, with a long, dry fin­ish.

En­joy in a de­cent glass so you take some time to en­joy those earthy aro­mas.

Luck­ily it’s also great when served slightly cooled along­side char­cu­terie.

Looks like I’m all set for sum­mer.
