Tasting Notes: Our Sonoma County Sangiovese has soft tannins that balance its natural acidity. Flavors of black cherry, ripe fruit and earthy elements of toast and dried herbs are layered throughout, with plenty of fruit focused on the finish. Ready to drink now or cellar for the next 2-6 years.

Vinification: The wine was fermented in small stainless steel tanks for a week and a half. The high skin to juice ratio translates to complex flavors, while allowing us to manage good tannin levels. The wine was aged for 18 months in new and older French oak barrels and bottled in April 2015.

Varietal: The Sangiovese grape is an ancient varietal indigenous to the Tuscany region of Italy. It is Italy’s most planted grape variety and the base for Chianti, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and most of the Super Tuscans.
