Very dry and acidic. A very nice wine to have with food. Not as much fruit as most Seghesio wines, but better balanced than most. Read more

External Reviews for Seghesio Family Vineyards Sangiovese Alexander Valley
Bouquet of dried violets and Sangiovese?s minerally earth. Provocative nucleus of dusty cherry fruit augmented with blackberries and blueberries. Medium to full-bodied with a deep ruby hue. Vibrant ripe acidity on the finish. Long fine tannins add
Our grandfather first worked with Sangiovese in the late 1800s during his tenure as winemaker at Italian Swiss Colony. In 1910, he planted a Chianti field blend surrounding the railroad station in what was then Chianti, California. Those Sangiovese plantings on our Home Ranch are the oldest in America and provided the rich source of four unique clones for our subsequent plantings of the varietal. Although Sangiovese typically grows vigorously, the low-yielding, shallow soils of our Home Ranch, combined with our small-berried clones, produce wines of intense varietal character.
* Sweet raspberry fragrance with violet scents * Similar flavors intertwined with blackberry and cherry fruit * Vibrant ripe acidity through the finish * Long, fine tannins add complexity and depth. * This wine captures Sangiovese’s essence.
Aged 14 months in French Oak.
Notes: Barrel-aged 14 months aging in French oak (20% new)
