Altamura Sangiovese Napa Valley 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

91 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): The 2008 Sangiovese shows plenty of varietal character in its expressive red cherries, licorice and tobacco but with Napa Valley warmth and shape. The wine's volume and depth should allow it to drink beautifully for a number of years. This is an impressive California Sangiovese, something I can't say too often. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018. (Dec 2011)
