Rosa d'Oro Vineyards Sangiovese 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

We are stubborn traditionalists when it comes to Sangiovese. We have the grippy medium-weight palate, the dusty strawberry and black cherry is front and center while orange peel, black pepper, and clove anchor the texture. Moderate ripeness keeps alcohol low and sings with food. We respect Sangiovese’s high-strung, nervous tannin by using neutral oak. This Sangiovese in the Classico mold will continue to evolve elegantly for another five years.

We have also planted Refosco, Negro Amaro and Sangiovese with the intention of becoming 100% estate grown in three years. We grow, vinify, bottle, and distribute our wines, producing 2000 cases annually that are sold primarily through our tasting room in Kelseyville, California. We also produce extra virgin olive oil made from our 200 olive trees. Rosa d’Oro farms sustainably at 1400 feet elevation and is family owned and operated. Read less

big nose of dr. brown's black cherry soda. strawberry and sour cherry on the palate. lots of fruit. you can tell that this sangiovese was not made in Italy. almost no oak, which is refreshing. the lively acidity makes it a no-brainer to pair with red sauce pasta.
