The Hannibal from Bouchard Finlayson has become a stalwart for this winery, with this red blend being extremely successful year after year. Previous vintages have been honoured with 5 stars by Platter's Wine Guide.
The blend is dominated by the Italian variety Sangiovese.
It presents a brilliant garnet hue with a pleasing nose and palate that both exhibit black cherry, spicy plum and wild berry notes. The wine is silky in texture and ends with a creamy aftertaste.
50% Sangiovese, 22% Pinot Noir, 13% Nebbiolo, 7% Mourvedre, 6% Barbera and 2% Shiraz.
