Ferrari-Carano Sonoma County Siena 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

SIENA has delicious aromas and flavors of fresh-picked blackberries, cola, cinnamon, cherry pie and vanilla bean. Sweet oak notes of spice, roasted marshmallow, caramel and vanilla complement lingering, bright red and black berries. SIENA has tannins that are soft, harmonious and mouth coating with lovely viscosity, depth and a tremendous 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.

Cherry acid bomb blends gracefully with anthocyanin-drenched dark fruit (plum, blueberry). Chewy tannins will carry you through a delightfully drawn out finish.

Ferrari-Carano has it made when it comes to sourcing good Sonoma County fruit. With estate vineyards in Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley and Russian River Valley, they're able to select outstanding Sangiovese, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon to blend for Siena. A reflection of their Italian heritage, Siena was one of the first premium Sangiovese blends made in California. The style emphasizes the bright cherry fruit that Sangiovese is known for. Blended with Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon the wine aged in new Hungarian and used French oak barrels for 12 months. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 90 points saying "Blended with Sangiovese, Syrah, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon, this is a big, exuberant wine that’s full bodied and fruity. It offers ripe flavors of black currants, licorice, mocha and black pepper, with hints of raisins. It’s luscious to drink now. Try with Szechuan beef or grilled pepper steak."
