Opolo Sangiovese Paso Robles 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

This medium-bodied wine features a bright, fruity nose with hints of spice which definitely follow through to the finish. This versatile wine is easy to pair with nearly anything because its acidity is lively enough to stand-up to some rather acidic food choices such as tomato-based sauces.

Nearly all of Opolo wines are estate vintages, meaning that they are made from grapes grown by the winery. The central operation comprises of 98 rolling Westside vineyards in as idyllic a setting as the beautiful Paso Robles area offers. The climate here owes a great debt to the nearby Pacific Ocean. The cooling effect of the marine layer accounts for temperature swings – the diurnal range – that can be as great as 50 degrees from afternoon highs to morning lows. This great disparity in temperatures enables the fruit to enjoy a much longer “hang time” and encourages high sugar levels and concentration of flavors. Read less

Recommended by our local "small" wine shop as an excellent value. My wife and found it to be wonderful wine with strong Sangiovese characters. Not as tannic as the Big Italian guns, but a beautfiul California interpretation; a bit more fruit forward, but not a fruit-bomb by any means.

I thought it was a very good wine. It really smoothed out after it had time to breath. Kind of sweet cherry on the nose. My first experience with Sangiovese, I would recommend it.
