Ferrari-Carano Siena 2006
from Sonoma County, California
Blend: 68% Sangiovese, 32% Malbec
Ferrari-Carano's Italian heritage is reflected in this Sangiovese-based, easy-sipping, multi-dimensional blend. Select lots of grapes were chosen from the winery's vineyards in Alexander, Dry Creek and Russian River Valleys to create a beautifully balanced and medium-bodied wine.
Siena is supple and ripe with heady fruit aromas of cranberry, strawberry and cherry complemented by cinnamon, nutmeg and cocoa. Juicy strawberry and raspberry jam flavors are followed by a round, viscous finish of caramel, roasted
marshmallow and spice. Excellent red fruit vitality is met by good acidity, round, gentle tannins and a lingering finish.
This wine pairs perfectly with savory Italian dishes, pasta with flavorful tomato sauces or pizza. Siena is also a nice match for American favorites such as chicken, lamb, pork and beef.
