The 2007 Terra d'Oro Sangiovese showcases the depth of character that can be coaxed
out of this varietal in Amador County. The wine opens with a nose of cinnamon, black
tea and ripe black cherry. The cherries spill into the mouth, buoyed along a juicy current
of balanced acidity. The finish lingers long and low, as the spicy components of the oak
intertwine with the spice of the grape. Quite possibly the perfect food wine, enjoy Terra
d'Oro Sangiovese with a family style platter of your favorite Italian dish. Add a table full
of friends and family, mix, and enjoy.
"Chris Leamy co-ferments sangiovese with 15 percent barbera to create this spicy red. It's light with tangy red berry flavors and ripe tomato-skin tannins. Tightly built, it will cut through pork sugo or lasagna."

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.
