La Niña brought good spring rain for the growing season with above average rainfall. Our vineyards where lush with an excellent canopy protecting the grapes for the ripening season. A cooler summer allowed for medium bodied red wines with spice and elegance.
I get to embrace my heritage by making one of Italy’s most celebrated grape varieties, Sangiovese. I love drinking this wine, especially with food and family.
Vibrant, plush cherry and strawberry characters with an earthy fine tannin structure. A bright line of acid and lingering savoury finish make this a great food wine.
This wine is exceptional drinking in its youth, but it will be interesting to enjoy the bottle development of the bright fruit with a few years in the cellar.
Sangiovese deserves to be enjoyed alongside Italian cuisine. Think pizza, pasta and salumi. Buon appetito!
