Mitolo is a family-owned business that produces a range of wines from McLaren Vale, South Australia. The essence of Mitolo Wines can be traced back centuries through generations of agriculturists and viticulturalists. The winery was founded by Frank Mitolo, who migrated in the 1950s from Italy’s Abruzzo region to Australia, with a passion for viticulture and winemaking.
The winery has a reputation for premium, high quality wines. In 2000, it made its first Shiraz, and two years later its first Cabernet Sauvignon. Since that time, Mitolo has championed these two varieties with fruit from some of McLaren Vale’s finest vineyards. At the same time, the winery expanded to successfully growing Italian varieties such as Vermentino, Sangiovese, and Nero d’Avola, paying homage to the family roots.
Primarily fruit driven with savoury complexing elements. Blackberry, blackcurrant and dark cherry, coffee grounds, tobacco, roasted nutmeg and a touch of charcuterie. Tannins are plush cored with powdery texture and a youthful structure. Subtle acidity is well balanced and integrated with the elegant weight and style of the wine.
Smoke beef brisket, roast lamb, game meat, any grilled & BBQ red meat.
