Pronounced cahn eye OH loh. This wine is traditionally grown in Tuscany and can be used to blend with Sangiovese to provide softness to a wine. Pizzini Canaiolo is ruby red in colour with aromas of berries, violets, plums and spices. The palate is generous and soft with flavours of cherries, plums and chocolate, and lovely textural tannins.
Establishing Pizzini Wines in 1994, Fred and Katrina Pizzini have built the brand based on their passion for family and a strong commitment to their Italian heritage, hard work and determination. These same virtues run through the veins of their children who all work within the business. Each of the Sangiovese vineyard sites has been evaluated based on consistency in fruit quality, fruit characteristics and resultant wine produced off of each site. The 2017 Pietra Rossa marks Pizzini’s 21st Sangiovese release.
