User Reviews for Seghesio Family Vineyards Sangiovese Alexander Valley Venom

Winemaker's Notes:

Growing and producing world-class Sangiovese is not for the faint of heart. Rattlesnakes, thistle and America’s most unique clone of Sangiovese are all that thrive atop Rattlesnake Hill on the Seghesio Home Ranch. The 40% slope, shallow topsoil and virtually impenetrable volcanic shale are the perfect antidote for taming this vigorous varietal into producing intensely flavored grapes. The clone, planted in 1910 by Edoardo Seghesio in America’s oldest Sangiovese vineyard, produces small-berried, loosely formed clusters.

Tasting Notes:

* A venerable clone with classic Tuscan black raspberry and savory potpourri qualities * Warm climate grape growing induces sublimely vibrant acidity and richness * Maturation in fine-grained (“respects the fruit”) French oak by providing a hint of perfume and a dense complexity of intertwined flavors that unfold on the palate. * Exemplary California Sangiovese displaying balance, concentration and elegance
