Rubacuori is an Italian word and translates to “stealer of hearts”. It is our reserve Sangiovese. Mature and engaging, this full-bodied, smoothly flowing Sangiovese has raspberry, cherry, chocolate, leather and walnut aromas, deeply layered flavour and melting ripe tannins.
Enjoy with a BBQ rib eye on the bone and a rich red wine jus.
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.
