Afton Mountain Vineyards Sangiovese 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Sangiovese is the red grape of Chianti. This is a medium-bodied wine with a hint of spice on the finish. Enjoy it with your Italian food. The 2006 vintage was blended with Merlot and Cabernet Franc to give the wine some structure.

This wine has a ripe, fruity start with a more tannic, spicy finish. The mix of flavors makes it pair perfectly with food or taste great alone.
