This is the second edition of the Di Dove Sei label, first released in 2014. The Martinborough componentry, which includes Pinot & Syrah, adds a voluptuous core to the dark aromatics we achieved from the Hawkes Bay addition. This is a rustic wine designed to be enjoyed in a casual manner. Imagine Northern Italy, dark spices with rustic cuisine. There is good acidity here, so cured meats, cheese and pasta dishes seem quite fitting as dining companions to this wine.
