Originally prompted by the classic taste and palate of Italian varieties: Sangiovese and Nebbiolo. The importation of these grape varieties in 1989 led to the development of this highly Hannibal label 12 years later. The name Hannibal was adopted as a symbolic expression of the synergy with the African elephant participating in linking the winelands of France and Italy together two thousand years ago under the invading command of the classic Carthaginian general.

A thought-provokingly unique blend. Dried violet, iron oxide and earthy forest growth accent a firm and well defined tannin. Focussed and meaty textures leaves a lasting impression of effortless weight. Reserved, yet boasting fine intensity and exciting length, hints at rewarding potential lying in wait. Drink from 2023 through 2033.

83 | Forward colour; slightly dull, quite stale. Dried out.

88 | Quite a savoury style with an oak overlay.

89 | the oddest varietal blend - sour cherry, meaty, smoky. Chewy tannins. Just falls away on the finish...

86 | An odd blend that still doesn't work; too many varietals, structures, and identities are pulling this wine in too many different directions... Lacks typicity and focus, leaves me wanting more freshness and cohesion for the blend... *Dr. Lecter recommends fava beans
