Ferrari-Carano Sonoma County Siena 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Winemaker's Notes: Siena is supple and ripe with heady fruit aromas of cranberry strawberry and cherry complemented by cinnamon nutmeg and cocoa. Juicy strawberry and raspberry jam flavors are followed by a round viscous finish of caramel roasted marshmallow and spice. Excellent red fruit vitality is met by good acidity round gentle tannins and a lingering finish.

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.

A wonderful wine at a wonderful price! Packed with flavors, while still silky smooth.

My friend brought it as a gift and I kept it for a while to share with my other friend. When my friend who gave me this bottle revisited my place, we just opened it. After one sip, I was like "wow! isn't it great or what?" I absolutely loved, loved this bottle. I want to have this bottle very now!

Right out of the bottle the 2006 Ferrari Carano Siena hits you with a heady aroma and is silky smooth with a long, rich finish. In the glass it has a luxurious garnet color. The variety of fruit flavors is totally satisfying. The second glass is even better after getting some air. I had my first bottle with a prime rib, and oh my, what a pair! For my taste this Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot blend compares to other wines at considerably higher prices.

Wine Tasting NotesSangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon are the classic grapes found in the Italian 'super-Tuscan' red wine blend. They take on a new dimension when grown in Sonoma Countys earthy burnt orange soils. SIENA combines bright raspberry, cherry flavors with smooth tannins and a rich finish.
