Mitolo Serpico Cabernet Sauvignon
This isn’t just any Cabernet Sauvignon. With our
Serpico, we do things a little bit differently; we
follow the traditional Italian technique of drying
the grapes to produce an Amarone style wine. When
Frank Mitolo decided to introduce a Cabernet into
his premium ‘Mitolo’ range, he was prepared to go
against the grain, and produce a unique wine style
in Australia. Much like the man the wine is named
after, Frank Serpico who went against all odds to
expose an immense depth of corruption in the New
York police force.

The vintage was a great one for us in McLarenVale,
producing deeply flavoured Shiraz wines with great
energy. Fruit for our Serpico comes from the Lopresti
vineyard, and more specifically the Chinese Block,
which is located at the southern end of McLaren Vale
about 3km east of the coastal town of Port Willunga.
The Cabernet in this vineyard is planted on black Biscay
clay which along with the ideal Mediterranean climate
produces wines of concentrated varietal character.
