Overview

Amongst the various definitions of the Italian word ‘Brusco’ are the terms “brusque’ ‘abrubt’ and ‘cavalier,’ as in cavalier attitude or behaviour. It is quite an appropriate sentiment for a wine style that is a little ‘devil may care’ with its colorful flavors and easy-drinking palate.

The bold ‘M’ that immediately takes the eye is simply the acronym for ’Mellow’.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Depth of blood-plum red

Aroma

Breathe-in a fresh basketful of seasonal cherries and strawberries

Palate

Vibrant and youthful, deliberately slightly effervescent or ‘frizzante’ on the palate with a sweet-berry attack on the palate. The fruit richness in the mid-palate finishes fresh and clean. Lower alcohol impact sits comfortably on the palate allowing the truly ‘vinous’ flavours to shine through.

Drink

24/7 !!!! Ideally suited for dining or socializing where the focus is also on casual food and company. A style that will please a broad cross-section of palates

Food Matching

Super friendly for ‘tapas’ eating. Pasta dishes and meat-seafood plates with tomato based sauces will sing with this!!!

Winery Profile

La Brusco Wine Co was established in 2011 as a joint venture project between two South Australian producers Serafino Wines and Wine SA. The new company's primary focus is the production and promotion of its principal brand red La Brusco which is best described as being a fruit-sweet , mellow Australian red with a touch of sparkle that is best served chilled. It is a style of wine that has had international presence for many years and in the past has typically been identified with the slightly frizzante style sweet reds to come out of Italy.

Whilst both Serafino Wines and Wine SA are better known for their full bodied Shiraz , Grenache and blended reds their new La Brusco red provides a great opportunity to express their interpretation of this modern style at the other end of the red-wine making spectrum.

La Brusco is a wine choice for the modern world's varying lifestyles. Its natural fruit sweetness, slight sparkle and lower alcohol make it an easy wine to enjoy and share. Within any group you are likely to find people who will enjoy the wine for its open, generous and uncomplicated style.

Bon apetito!
