Nice smooth berry flavored wine.
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.
Ferrari-Carano’s Italian heritage is reflected in this Sangiovese-based, easy-sipping, multi-dimensional blend. Select lots of grapes were chosen from our vineyards in Alexander, Dry Creek and Russian River Valleys to create a beautifully balanced and medium-bodied wine. 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. Vintage Notes: From our valley floor and mountainside vineyards, our vines for the SIENA are farmed in shallow, rocky, low-vigor soil that adds impressive depth and concentration of flavor intensity to the wine. A mild late spring and summer ensured that the mature vines had a healthy canopy for the grapes, which provided the perfect combination of sunlight and heat penetrating the grape clusters. These conditions allowed the grapes to reach full maturity in both flavor and structure. Harvest was completed mid-October. Winemakers Notes: This wine is composed of primarily Sangiovese and blended with Malbec. Grapes were hand-harvested, and upon entering the winery, hand-sorted and then gravity fed directly into tanks for five days of cold soaking. Individual lots were moved to barrels for malolactic fermentation, then blended and barrel aged in new Hungarian Puncheons and older French oak in the wine caves for 14 months, with an additional two months of bottle aging prior to release. Appellation: Sonoma County Blend: 68% Sangiovese, 32% Malbec Cooperage: 20% new Hungarian Puncheon; 80% older French oak barrels Release Day: May 2007
