Leonetti Cellar Sangiovese Walla Walla Valley 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Not yet reviewed; 2008 vintage rated 92 points by both Wine Advocate and International Wine Cellar: Good deep red. Enticing aromas of red and darker berries, licorice, coffee and cocoa powder, with a distinct sangiovese floral quality. Sweet, dense and vibrant, with nicely integrated acidity giving definition to the sexy flavors of berries, dried herbs and flowers. I find the lift of the 2008 vintage but winemaker Chris Figgins notes that this wine's acidity is average rather than especially high.

Leonetti Cellar:
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.
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
