2006 Primo Estate Il Briccone – Australia, South Australia, Mount Lofty Ranges, Adelaide Hills

    This wine just was not together for me-

    Nose was nice mix of big Shiraz dark fruit of cherry, plumb and blackberry- this was a fairly big wine and was a little disjointed when we had it. I am a fan of McLaren Vale wines and for some reason I felt a disconnect from the fruit to the acidity. I felt all the got lent to this blend from the 30% Sangioves was the acidity. To pair with food the acidity is ok but the Shiraz fruit would not leave me wanting to pair this with any Italian fare. I have another bottle and will give this some more air time to see if that helps-

    The stuff is all in there but my bottle had it in pieces instead of being all together-Really would like to see the blend be 50-50 Sangio to Shiraz or 70% Sangio at $17 worth the price to try something different. (86 pts.)
