Benessere Sangiovese Napa Valley 1997

Winemaker's Notes:

The 1997 vintage began with a flood on New Years Day! Harvest began early as a result of the weather. An abundant crop with extremely high quality was the payoff for the growers and winemakers. 1997 Sangiovese notes 1997 Sangiovese Label The 1997 vintage began with a flood on New Years Day! It is a vivid memory because I came out to the winery to rescue our dog, Chico, who had climbed the stairs to the catwalk to avoid the water. A dry early spring followed, which resulted in an early bud break. The following spring months provided for an excellent bloom and set of the fruit. The balance of the growing season was typified by warm, dry days, without morning fog, resulting in long ripening days. Harvest began early as a result of the weather. An abundant crop with extremely high quality was the payoff for the growers and winemakers.

Benessere Vineyards:
Benessere” is the Italian word for well being and prosperity. This is the feeling we try to embody at Benessere Winery. We are a small family owned, high end producer of Italian varietals, located in the north end of Napa Valley on the valley floor where the soil is well suited for growing excellent wine. We have expanded our selection of varietals to include Zinfandel, Merlot, Syrah and Muscat di Canelli. We also produce an outstanding blend called Phenomenon.
