Winemaker's Notes:

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.
