Il Briccone Shiraz Sangiovese 2022

Il Briccone Shiraz Sangiovese 2022

In Italian, Il Briccone is ‘the rogue’ – a spirited, mischief-making rascal.

This wine is my mischievous blend of Shiraz and Sangiovese. 25 years ago, when I first dreamt up the wine, I was told that the combination would “only ruin great Shiraz fruit”.

I was a young Australian winemaker with Italian parents. To me, the idea of blending classic grapes with exciting new Italian varietals made sense.

Since then, Il Briccone has grown in reputation to become our most popular red wine.

Today, we make it by crushing McLaren Vale fruit into open-topped concrete fermenters. We age the wine in seasoned oak barrels for one year before release.

This is a vibrant, full-bodied red brimming with plum, pepper, and spice. The Sangiovese adds a burst of cherry to the wine's savoury finish.

Il Briccone shines when poured alongside hearty, tomato-based cooking. We love serving it with my Mum’s Polpette Recipe – meatballs in a rich tomato sauce.

Delicious! Full bodied, a little bit of spice but tastes fresh...doesn't weigh you down like some shiraz's can. Will definitely buy again.

So Yummy! Not as heavy as some Shiraz is, could easily drink through-out any occasion.

Great wine, it seems to bring the best out of the Shiraz and the Sangiovese. It is described as rich and juicy and that is exactly what it is, great drinking now.

A full-bodied wine. We enjoyed it with an Italian banquet. Loved the complexity on the palate. A stunning food wine

I really like this wine, and my friends like it even better. Full of flavour and very smooth. Every time I take a bottle to a get together the comments about how good is the wine just keep coming. Even one of them who never drinks always has a glass!

The wine we have everytime we fire up the pizza oven. The only exception being when we have The Tuscan

Great tasting whilst at the cellar door- and looks great in the bottle- just waiting now for some cooler winter weather in topical Cairns to sit back and enjoy it with a home made wood fired pizza! hope its as nice as my first encounter with the '99 vintage"

From the UK, visiting Mclaren Vale, and I'm a big Chiant lover as well... As soon as I tasted this I knew I was taking several bottles home with me. That 15% ofSangiovese just takes the top off of the big tanin punch of the Shiraz, and mellows it out to make a great food wine, unlike anything else I've tasted. Marvellous.

I would not normally drink this blend as I am not really a fan of shiraz, but the result is a smooth, easy drinking wine that slips down at an alarming rate.

Not normally a red drinker but was convinced to give it a try at the winery during a tasting. So glad I did. Shared it with friends and totally missed out because they LOVED IT. Will re-order!

Having had this for the first time as a wine to compliment a beef shaslik and fennell and radish salad, I was surprised. Not normally a red drinker in summer this filled the mouth with shiraz aftertaste and explosive sangoivese punch. Delicious
