Leonetti Cellar Sangiovese Walla Walla Valley 2007
2007 was a special vintage, and the Sangiovese in particular achieved new heights. The wine is dark enough to be mistaken for a Merlot or Cabernet. The aroma is just magnificent and so true to Sangio—dried fruits, cream frosting, and other pure fruit aromas dominate. There’s a driving note of pure ripe strawberries that reminds me of days spent picking them as a teenager in the Klicker Family’s famous strawberry fields just down the road. On the palate, the wine has unbelievable length, glorious acidity, and very fine-grained tannin. Its levity makes it pair with an incredible variety of dishes from red meat to pasta, to heavy fish.
Each of our vineyard solis shape the wine that comes from it. This is the essence of terroir. The soil of Seven Hills at the south end of the Valley is Ellisford Silt Loam.
