Girasole Vineyards Sangiovese Mendocino County 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Medium ruby in color with bright aromas of blackcherry, raspberry, and red plum. This wine has a zesty crisp acidity that showcases the bright red fruit. The longer, cooler fermentation than most red wines allows the fruit to come to the forefront. No oak also preserves the fruit flavors. Nice medium stylish Sangiovese that is not over the top, but perfectly balanced for easy drinking or pairing with a wide variety of foods. (This is the grape that the Italians blend with other varietals to make their popular Chianti.) Sugar: 23.6 Brix

Charlie Barra planted the home ranch, Redwood Valley Vineyards, in 1955, and has farmed approximately 200 acres of organic varietal wine grapes ever since. Sitting on the benchlands above the headwaters of the Russian River in Mendocino County, the vineyards share the land with five ponds, open space for wildlife and pasture for smaller animals, like Navajo Churro sheep. All water used for irrigation and frost protection is from winter run-off from the pristine watersheds that surround the vineyards. Read less
