The Oddbins Take

For those of you fluent in Italian… or Mario Puzo novels, you’ll be well aware Il Capo translates as ‘the boss.’ And like all other leaders of the Cosa Nostra this wine is firm, uncompromising and with distinct Italian flair. Thankfully however, it is unlikely to show up at your house in the middle of the night with a conspicuous violin case.

Made from a unique blend of 2 native Italian grape varieties, emigrated to Victoria, Australia. This complex red derives dark fruit notes and an enticing structure from the Nero d’ Avola and a tart red berry and herbal character from the Sangiovese. Gentle use of oak gives this blend subtle notes of vanilla and black pepper. A wonderful wine, that is sure to dominate the dinner table.
