Each year Pillastro is adored by all who taste it - from show judges to critics. "Lush and lovely" wrote Malcolm Gluck, "Not expensive and terrifically drinkable." No wonder the last six vintages have bagged 50 awards, while the winery has twice been voted southern Italy's finest. As you'll taste, this vintage is on top form - and will surely add to that award tally. No expense has been spared - from kid-glove handling of the grapes to ageing in new French oak barrels (to give Pillastro its toasty complexity). Serve to friends who normally drink Aussie Cabernet or Shiraz ... they'll love it! Deep, dark and saturated with enticing aromas of ripe plum and spicy raisins. An intense, luscious mouthful - rippling with black fruit, toasty chocolate and warming oak notes. Soft, ripe tannins make it the perfect match for roasts and dishes rich in herbs and spices.
