Hannibal 2016

Hannibal 2016

Quick Overview

Originally prompted by the classic taste and palate of Italian varieties: Sangiovese and Nebbiolo. The importation of these grape varieties in 1989 led to the development of this highly successful blend, with the first commercial launch of the Hannibal label 12 years later. The name Hannibal was adopted as a symbolic expression of the synergy with the African elephant participating in linking the wine lands of France and Italy together two thousand years ago under the invading command of the classic Carthaginian general.

This vintage is fresh and alive with a characteristic Italian mouthfeel reflecting fruity complexity. This is a unique collection of varieties but they all combine to achieve a harmonious orchestra of flavours where the essence of Italian food immediately comes to mind! Olive and red current flavours combine with cranberry to result in a lingering finish and complex mouthfeel. Excellent maturation is expected.
Aubergine and mozzarella bake, chevre cheese, and red meats!
