"As everyone in California knows, I have little respect for most California Sangiovese. However, there are exceptions, and Pride Mountain's is one of them . . . The greatest northern California Sangiovese, the 2001 blows away its competition," said Robert Parker in the notes accompanying his 94 point score of our 2001 Sangiovese in the December 2003 issue of The Wine Advocate.

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...Read More About Sangiovese
