Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.9%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Among Tuscany's oldest and most prestigious wine families, Ambrogio and Giovanni Folonari teamed with Allen Shoup to produce a wine that showcases Washington state's terroir with plenty of Italian character. Saggi (meaning "wisdom") is a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah.

Blend: 53% Sangiovese, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Syrah

Critical Acclaim

"Made by Giovanni and Ambrogio Folonari, both of Ruffino and then later Folonari Tenute (both projects in Italy), the 2010 Red Wine SAGGI is comprised of 53% Sangiovese, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon and 19% Syrah. Spending 18 months in 100% French oak, it is Washington's take on a Super Tuscan, and a good one at that. Loaded with ripe red and black fruits, forest floor, cedar, spice and a dry-aged beef-like gaminess, it stays relatively compact and focused on the palate and has a medium-bodied, firm feel, integrated acidity and notable tannin. As with all of this estate's wines, their overall balance and texture ensures that they're enjoyable now, however, this will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and impress for a decade after that. Drink 2015-2025.

92 Points

"This is an excellent wine comprised of Sangiovese and Syrah from the Boushey and Candy Mountain Vineyards, and Cabernet from Stonetree Vineyard—all top-tier vineyards. Bright and generous, with plenty of toasty barrel flavors, it's highlighted with cut tobacco, citrus, herb and floral hints. There is an underlying minerality as well, making this one of Washington's most complex 'Super Tuscans.'
Editors' Choice"
92 Points

"Good bright red-ruby. Crushed bitter cherry, strawberry, redcurrant and chocolate on the musky nose, along with a floral nuance. Suave, creamy and seamless on the palate, with ripe strawberry fruit complemented by an inviting floral element. Nicely filled in but without any excess weight. Finishes saline, tactile and firm, with impressive lingering sweetness. Boasts plenty of early sex appeal."
