Description

Velvety and aromatic with rich concentrated fruit and easy integrated tannins. Extraordinary wine. The colour is marvellously crimson and bright. The composition represents a blend of 39% Sangiovese, 18% Pinot Noir, 18% Shiraz, 15% Nebbiolo, 5% Mourvédre and 5% Barbera. Very, very interesting as Inspector Cluseau used to say.

Called Hannibal because the grapes crossed 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.
