Hugh Hamilton 2005 The Mongrel Sangiovese (McLaren Vale)

Inspired by a trip to Tuscany, Hamilton planted Sangiovese in the mid-1990s, and while this wouldn't be mistaken for Chianti, it does have Sangiovese's classic cherry and tobacco flavors. It's less full-bodied than the other Hamilton offerings, making it more of a picnic red, or one to pair with chicken rather than steak. Multiple U.S. importers. Joe Czerwinski
