in the vineyard : The early prediction on vintage 2003 was that it was going to be a gem. This prophesy has proved correct – a great year for both white and red wines. This third release under the Hannibal label once again emphasizes the eclectic mystery arising from blending these unique “taste colours” together.

in the cellar : This vintage comprises of 52% Sangiovese, 24% Pinot noir, 11% Nebbiolo, 9% Mourvedre and 4% Barbera. All this fruit is home grown.This wine “painting” is two thirds Italian and one third French. It is said that the essence and soul of Italian wine is in its local or regional grape varieties. I guess the excitement of the Hannibal blend lies in the indulgence of pitching these grape varieties together. It’s these “taste colours” which allow for Hannibal to be different and individually unique.
