Winemaker's Notes:

The Terra dOro 1996 Sangiovese is a full-bodied, immensely rich and ripe red wine with stunning plum, rhubarb and exotic spice aromas and intense, mouthfilling flavors. It will beautifully complement traditional Tuscan specialties such as grilled chicken, veal scallopini, pasta with truffles and beef Florentine.

About Terra d'Oro:

For more than 150 years, fortune seekers have been lured to California's rugged Sierra Foothills. Though they once came for the gold, these days they come for the wine—Terra d'Oro, to be more specific. Handcrafted from some of Amador County's most historic vineyards, Terra d'Oro wines are rich indeed, full of the character and intensity that perfectly captures the essence of this "Land of Gold."
