Winemaker's Notes:

The 2010 Terra d'Oro Sangiovese is a beautiful wine with elegant and inviting aromas of sweet rosewater, exotic spices and subtle hints of raspberries. Rich flavors of candied cherry, red currant tea, allspice and white pepper coat the mouth and its complex tannic structure make for a round finish.

The Sangiovese is light-bodied and offers bright acidity, making it the perfect food-friendly wine. For a zesty pairing, serve with marinated lamb kebobs.

Blend: 91% Sangiovese, 9% Barbera
