Renowned Aussie winemaker, Justin Bubb, created this Babo range to focus on ideal wine regions of Italy. While his nero d’Avola from Sicily is brilliant, it’s this wildly delicious rendition of Chianti that gets podium placing. It shows scents of sarsaparilla, clove and lavender while offering drinkers a masterclass in fine, aldente tannins stretched over lightly juicy, dark cherry and earthy spice flavours. It’s surprisingly bright, drinkable in its youth and generally feels like a wine of some seriously excellent value.
