Winemaker's Notes

Made famous in the Chianti region of Tuscany, Sangiovese has had a slow start in California as growers and winemakers have worked to tame it's finicky nature. The daily hands-on farming of grower Bill Hubbert is reflected in the complexity and balance of this wine, which is 100% Sangiovese.

One of the greatest food-friendly varietals in the world, this wine shows it's true form at the dinner table.
