Nugan Estate Frasca's Lane Vineyard Alfredo Sangiovese 2021
The Nugan family named this wine after their grandfather, founder and inspiration - Alfredo Nugan.
The Sangiovese is sourced from our Frasca’s Lane Vineyard in Victoria’s cool
climate King Valley. After harvest, the grapes were crushed, yeasted and
pumped over in traditional style to avoid the extraction of bitter tannins. The wine
was then transferred to one and two year old French and American oak for
fermentation, followed by a further 18 months maturation prior to final blending
Deep crimson in appearance with a youthful purplish hue. Vibrant aromas of fresh plum, cherries and stewed rhubarb with mocha, dark chocolate and earth followed by a savoury palate of spicy plum and raspberry with well integrated tannins.
