2006 Terra d'Oro Sangiovese is a testament to diligence and hard work paid inthe cellar. The garnet hue of Sangiovese is deepened by Barbera's rich purple pigment. A base of spiced cider aromas of clove and nutmeg are built upon by complex aromas of leather, pekoe tea, and anise. Flavors of red plum, apple, and black cherry stewed fruitspiced with cinnamon, vanilla bean, and licorice entice your pallet. The finish brimming with fruit and spice ends with a kiss of sweet oak. Co-fermenting with Barbera results in a silky mouthfeel and food-friendly acidity that ensures a successful pairing with anything off the menu. Pair 2006 Terra d'Oro Sangiovese with hearty Cioppino, Duck Breast with a velvety plum reduction, or your favorite pizza.
