Tasting Notes: The 2016 Sangiovese is fruit-forward with layers of cherry, plum and complex elements of toast and herbs. Aromas of dried cherries, figs, and a subtle hint of rose bouquet. Well established tannins along with light oak aging allow for an enduring finish.
Vintage: We had become accustomed to working with limited amounts of water due to the drought, but this year we worried about abundance - it was a wet winter. Despite early season warmth and rain challenges, once we hit ripening season we had great weather for the hanging fruit to reach full maturity and to achieve ideal flavors and balance.
