Winemaker's Notes

Tasting Notes: Classic coloration of garnet and ruby introduces our 1997 Charles Krug Family Reserve Sangiovese. The deep color supports a classic range of aromas and flavors. The jammy complex of strawberry and cherry aromas are an introduction to exotic nuances of spice and cocoa. The palate is supple yet firmly braced by the natural acid structure of the fruit softened by the texture of the vintage. A tremendous combination of varietal expression and sumptuous fruit.

Food Pairings: This wine is an amazing accompaniment to a wide variety of foods. Rich enough for roast duck or pheasant, zesty enough for a spicy paella and unpretentious enough for a slice of pizza.
