Il Passero is an Italian style offshoot of the Sparrow. There are two wines, a small parcel of Nebbiolo from Gundagai in NSW and a Sangiovese from King Valley in Victoria. They are bottled exclusively for Sparrow & Vine.
Nebbiolo is the noble grape variety of Piedmont in North West Italy and often draws comparison to the Pinot Noir wines of French Burgundy. This particular Nebbiolo hales from the NSW region of Gundagai and has echoes of both regions.
With a delicate aroma of rose petals and a palate of fine red fruits and chewy tannins it’s the perfect food wine. And a little bit exotic too, offering Euro style with a distinct Australian accent.
