in the cellar : Some years ago I described creating the Hannibal Blend as an indulgence; it’s about the different grapes painting diverse taste colours. It is these taste colours which allow for Hannibal to be different and eclectically unique. Creating a wine based on three principle grapes, namely Sangiovese, Pinot noir and Nebbiolo was started twenty years ago - this with the importation of Sangiovese and Nebbiolo in 1989. It took twelve years to satisfy the essential nature of this composition.

Vintage 2007 has reverted to receiving a much smaller content of Shiraz than in 2006 - this time 13 %.
