This wine's story

What do you get if you cross the world-beating wine knowledge of Italy’s Tuscany with Aussie determination and the type of land only Australia can offer? The answer would be something along the lines of BABO - a small, dedicated winery committed to combining the best of Italy with the best of Australia. BABO is run by Justin Bubb, who cut his teeth in Barolo and Chianti, and picked up the local love for superb, complex red wines, packed with character and expression. After living in Chianti for several years, he headed home down under, with the aim of providing his home country something different and unique: real, quality Italian wine, grown on Australian soil.

Today, BABO is run by Justin and his two best mates, who have sourced the finest vines they could bring back home from the famed Chianti region, and continue to impress year on year with the quality and authenticity of their produce.

Sangiovese is one of the great grape variety for pairing with food, and if you travel to any authentic Italian eatery, from streetside trattorias to the finest restaurants, you’ll find this grape variety dominating the wine list. Sangiovese pairs best with roasted meats, and also works beautifully with cured, cold meats, salamis and things like prosciutto crudo. It can also stand up to strong, hard cheeses, making it the perfect match for most of Italy’s cuisine.

Sommelier Notes

Lush yet medium-bodied Sangiovese, crafted by Australian winemaker Justin Bubb, with a flourish of savoury earthiness on the finish. At its heart, this is rich with cherry and dark spice, but has plenty of juicy acidity to keep things fresh. Hints of char, leather and dried meat. Real complexity that only Tuscan Sangiovese can deliver. Over-delivers and is perfect drinking in these cooler months.
