Called Hannibal because the grapes cross the Alpes, just as the Carthage general did to kick the Romans where they didn't want kicked. Peter Finlayson's dad was from Inverness & went to work in Cape Town (a medic). Peter fell into wine when a baby, and just like Asterix, took on super-powers, in Peter's case, how to make stunning wines.
Extraordinary wine. The colour is marvellously crimson and bright. The composition represents Sangiovese (chianti grape) at 33% while the Pinot noir (burgundy grape) portion is 22%. The remainder is a mix of 18% Shiraz, 17% Nebbiolo (barolo grape), 4% Barbera (N Italy) and 6% Mouvedre (chateau-neuf-de pape grape). Very, very interesting as Inspector Cluseau used to say.
