This is a great wine with loads of complexity - a must for any serious Sangio lover. The nose has distinct cinnamon stick notes over dark fruit aromas. Plums and currants on the first sip that lead to a meaty basil finish. I struggle to put this wine into words, so my advice is to try it! A truly phenomenal wine!

An Italian grape variety meets California know-how. Sangiovese is the most widely planted grape in Italy. It goes into everything from cheap acidic Chianti in straw wrapped bottles to the finest super Tuscan wines. We’ve taken this lovely, strawberry-like-flavor laced grape, found growers who worked hard at getting it to grow and ripen properly in California, like the Roumiguiere (Row-me-gair)family in Clear Lake (Lake County) and added our best technique for producing fruit forward, gentle, friendly wine to produce what has become our favorite summer red. When fully vine-ripened, Sangiovese looses it’s aggressive acidity in favor of lushness. It’s focus is on the front of the palate, like Merlot, but more in a cresting wave at the front of the palate. The ripeness also reduces the acids. Our fermentation techniques produce soft tannins. long barrel aging, unusual for a California Sangiovese but common in Italy makes it extra mellow. These qualities make it suitable for chilling for a warm summer day’s libation, a great companion to Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay as a stand-up wine. It is balanced perfectly to pair with Mediterranean style food.
