Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Tasting Notes:

* 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.
