in the vineyard : The concept of Hannibal stands by its original design of mixing French and Italian cultivars together. Vintage 2009 was predicted to offer stunning results and two years later there is no disappointment. The essence and soul of this Italian, French blend is captured in the pitching of six grape cultivars into one wine. The foundation is based on Italian Sangiovese which at 38% is its principle component!

All these cultivars are grown on the home territory Hemel-en-Aarde Valley terrior which is composed of heavy clay soils. In dry years such as 2009 these soils offer red wines of bold composition and abundant complexity.

in the cellar :  This vintage is comprised of Sangiovese 38%, Pinot Noir 18%, Nebbiolo 16%, Shiraz 15%, Mouvedré 10% and Barbera 3%.
