Ferrari Carano Siena Sonoma County Red 2015

External Review:

Siena was one of the first premium Sangiovese blends made in California. Ferrari-Carano has produced this wine with consistently superb results for over 20 years now. A reflection of their Italian heritage Siena is a wine that has been continually honed over the years to find the perfect formula. This vintage, along with Sangiovese that includes Malbec, Petite Sirah and some Cabernet Sauvignon. Grapes are sourced from estate vineyards in Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley and Russian River Valley, as well as from other premium vineyards in Sonoma. The wine is aged in 20% new Hungarian oak barrels and some older French oak for a total of 12 months. The style emphasizes the bright cherry fruit that Sangiovese is known for. It brings ripe flavors of black cherry, licorice, mocha and black pepper along with supple tannins and lively acidity. It's luscious to drink right now.

Ferrari-Carano vineyard practices are customized to match the particular characteristics of each vineyard to help the vines produce the best fruit possible, and to in turn, achieve the best wine possible. Directed by Don Carano and orchestrated under the supervision of Steve Domenichelli, Director of Vineyard Operations, these practices are extremely labor intensive. Steve and his team implement irrigation and nutrient regimes, trellis system and canopy management, rootstock and clone combinations, and pruning and cane selection for each vineyard site and each block within a vineyard. Because of Sonoma County's diverse geological makeup, even within one vineyard parcel there may be several different types of soil with different degrees of nutrients for vines and water-holding capacity. In addition, Steve and his team practice sustainable farming techniques, such as recycling organic matter for use as mulch in the vineyards, planting cover crops and other plant species to avoid soil erosion, add desirable nutrients back to the soil and to attract desirable insects, and integrating animals to naturally enhance biodiversity and nutrient recycling.
