Winemaker's Notes

Brilliant ruby-red in color with loads of ripe blackberry, strawberry and currant on the nose. The plush fruit flavors are deliciously integrated with subtle hints of mocha, tobacco and oak spice. Full and rich with soft tannins, the lush layers of fruit and spice are backed by lively acidity. This everyday Sangiovese is the perfect choice for barbecues, pastas, pizza, and sausages.

A supple 100% Sangiovese, matured in French barrels for 3 months.

Critical Acclaim

"Medium red. The nose begins with a lovely floral perfume and good vinosity, then turns a touch syrupy. Offers a sensual mingling of smokiness and bright cranberry-inflected fruit, with a hint of unabsorbed carbon dioxide giving added freshness. Somewhat Beaujolais-like on the sappy, moderately persistent finish, with a delicate green pepper quality."

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
