Overview

In 2011 Pizzini quietly released a new range of wines under the Lana label.

These wines are made by Joel Pizzini. Joel is using some old winemaking techniques to make these wines so that some of them show more funky, earthy and savoury notes to the wines in the Pizzini range. These wines are made to be enjoyed with food, especially dishes with Italian flavours.

Blend of sangiovese (55%), canaiolo (14%), colorino (11%) and merlot. Matured in a variety of oaks, 20% of which was new.

Expert Reviews

Blend of sangiovese (55%), canaiolo (14%), colorino (11%) and merlot. Matured in a variety of oaks, 20% of which was new.

Light and slight but with drinkability laid on. There’s a raciness to this. Leather, game, fresh cherries and an assortment of dried, flowery herbs. It’s a touch drying on the finish and the acidity is certainly high, but both can be seen as positives. Drink it young. Rated : 89 Points - Campbell Mattinson, Winefront Drink 2016 - 2019
