My first contact with Susan and Michael was via Twitter. I was keen to try their wines and they were keen to get a hold of some Tassie Pinot Noir. So, we swapped some wines, easy. As a result one of the wines I received was this very cool red.
Then, on a trip to the Barossa, I took along some more Tassie Pinots and called in to see them. What great people they are! Personable, engaging and so generous with their time.
The 2014 Sete Di Vino is a blend of Primitivo (78%) and Barbera (22%) it spent 14 months in old French Oak and was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
Okay, it is just medium bodied but gee it has some really nice juicy fruit on the palate and what a crowd pleaser! I took it to some friends place on the weekend because they were firing up their pizza oven. I took three wines including this one. Well, the response I got were pretty amazing. Everyone wanted more of the Sete Di Vino. Comments such as, “That is gorgeous” and, “Ooooh, that is good. Did we only have one bottle?” says it all really.
Yes, it goes well with pizza and maybe it is a pizza wine but to me it is more than that and it deserves to be treated so. I reckon it would go okay with Chilli Con Carne or even some lamb koftas. I’ll have to get some more and find out.
Sete Di Vino “a thirst for wine” and at $25, I definitely have a thirst for more of this wine. Get on it!
