Pedroncelli Sangiovese Dry Creek Valley Alto Vineyards 2001
With experience and a distinctive style in mind, John Pedroncelli knows where to best plant this unique varietal and then harvest the fruit at optimum ripeness. The grapes were crushed into stainless steel fermentors and fermented for 7 days. The cap was pumped over periodically to enhance the color, flavor and intensity in the wine. The Sangiovese was aged in American oak barrels for twelve months and developed additional smoothness and complexity through this process. One thing we do differently with the Sangiovese is to age it in seasoned barrels to allow the delicate and subtle fruit flavors to shine through.

Brick red in color. Mulitlayered berry aromas with rose petal and leather in the background. Delicate and balanced, with ripe strawberry pie, earthy mineral and a hint of toasty oak. Full-bodied, with a relaxed mouthfeel, good fruit, well-integrated tannins and a long, soft, balanced finish. Hard to resist now the wine will age well for 3-5 years.
Aged 12 months in American Oak.
