“The release of Vinea Marson?s 2015 Sangiovese marks a return to 100% single vineyard fruit sourced from the twelve clones in our sotto & sopra estate vineyard. Deep garnet in colour, the Sangiovese possesses bright red fruit aromas of dark cherries and ripe raspberries alongside savoury notes of vanilla bean pod, nutmeg and dried herbs.”
About the winery – Vinea Marson
The inspiration behind Vinea Marson stems from winemaker Mario Marson’s Italian winemaking heritage stretching back some four generations. Mario’s grandfather grew and bottled Friulano, Cabernet and Merlot and his great-grandfather, Giuseppe Zaghet, was chief winemaker for the local landowner, the padrone of Villa Brunetta at Prata di Pordenone, based in Friuli in the early twentieth century. This was transferred to suburban Melbourne where his migrant father, Giuseppe, planted rows of vines in their backyard to bring wine to the dinner table each night. Mario continued this tradition both as viticulturalist and winemaker for some twenty years in the Yarra Valley – mostly at Mount Mary.
