Blackbilly Sangiovese 2009

While I have had some good Australian sangioveses, I am not yet sold on them.  Perhaps like my experience of their Italian cousins, you must simply go, wine by wine, vintage by vintage, to try to find that superstar wine that inevitably turns up for a bargain price.  That said, I've liked some of the King Valley versions (Pizzini, Sam Miranda), and Neagles Rock in the Clare Valley.  This wine?  It had an aroma of charry, bright cherries.  The palate was a bit uneven and sharp, with some length in the background.  It was not really better on day 2.  79 points.
