      • It's been hailed the Italian Stallion back at the 5OS Project Headquarters and for good reason. 5OS make killer booze, and this is a killer red. Italian born, Australian raised... We are big fans of the experimental and boundary-pushing attitude at 5OS. They have taken Barbera, a widely planted grape variety in Italy, and given it a traditional Aussie upbringing. There is nothing mainstream about this Barbera, which only makes us love it more. Discover Italy's best-kept secret, Aussie style.

     

      • "Lovely and bright in the glass, not as opaque as I was expecting but lively with hints of toffee and flowery herbs. It smells like it’s going to be savoury, in a good way. Super fresh, almost like it’s straight from the press, it’s clean and forward with the acid in the front row but there’s a wall of cool fruit sitting really close behind that when the music dies down will no doubt take to the stage. If you like them young, fresh and full of potential you’ll love this."
