Expert Reviews

It needs a little time to relax and soften but this is a worthwhile sangiovese. Chrismont has hit form with this variety of late. The tannin tends towards heroic but it just seems to work with the savoury, leafy, nutty aspects of the wine. It's an autumnal wine, but with enough fruit to keep any queries at bay. Just make sure you give it another year or two in bottle first. CM - Australian Wine Companion, Rating 92, 27th July 2015

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

A rich cherry red.

Aroma

Exudes sumptuous dark baked cherry and juicy blackberry aromas, enhanced by toasted oak notes.

Palate

A plump and generous front palate finishes full of conserved fruit, with dry savoury tannins, for which the La Zona Sangiovese has become recognised. A wine with moderate acidity and a medium to full body.

Winery Profile

The Chrismont story starts in Italy in the 1920s where Arnie's father Arnold (right) grew up in the small town of Noarna in the Trentino region near the Austrian border. One of ten children, Arnold grew up on a farm that had grape vines and a small orchard. His father was a share farmer and they lived as caretakers in the majestic Castel Noarna, rebuilt in the 11th century from its own ruins after a probable previous life as a fortification during the Roman era. The castle sat amid the steep Trentino terrain, dominating Noarna and the surrounding area of Vallagarina.

Arnold set sail for Australia in 1952 and settled in the North East Victoria town of Myrtleford, helping a migrant Italian family on their tobacco farm. It didn’t take long before a number of Arnold's brothers settled in Australia, too. The four decided to join forces to start a tobacco growing business with Arnold in charge. From a small share-farming plantation, Arnold grew it into the largest tobacco growing enterprise in the Southern Hemisphere within eight years; the height of the business came in the mid-1960s. When the Australian Government introduced a quota system to the tobacco industry severely constraining tobacco production, the brothers were rendered bankrupt overnight.

Following discussions with John and Peter Brown in 1979, Arnold and Arnie received a ten-year contract to supply grapes to Brown Brothers of Milawa, thus embarking on a journey full of the trademark Chrismont passion and drive.
