Ardente Atlas Peak Sangiovese 2002
This Classic Sangiovese features up front aromas of dried peaches and apricots, while the undertones of strawberries and cherries give it a rich and well balanced mouth feel. The selected grapes used in this wine were grown at an altitude of 1500 feet on Atlas Peak road. The blend consists of 85% Sangiovese and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon. The vinification was performed in 225 liter French oak barrels, with an additional 2 years aging in the oak and 2 years in the bottle. The result is a wine with a smooth mouth feel and a long finish.
One of the most intriguing, complex wines I've had. Flavors of black cherry, oak & green olive dominate. A little tart in the beginning, but opened up nicely. Paired very well with the Cioppino we had for lunch.
