Winemaker Notes

The opening nose of this wine is textbook Sangiovese. Strawberries and strawberry preserves dominate the fruit profile backed up by some beautiful floral notes and aromatics you would expect of an old-world Brunello or Chianti such as saddle leather and earth. The palate reveals the wine's youth as it is a big, tannic youngster on the first taste. This gives way to impressive length, some chalky oak, with a fantastic cutting acidity, focus and a burst of fruit that makes this wine's profile just explode wtih food. We're very proud to have this wine in the Leonetti stable, as it is so entirely different from our Bordeaux variety wines and yet so entirely attractive in those differences. We are also tremendously happy with our decision to add an extra 6 months of bottle age, further improving our Sangiovese program, already critically noted as the finest in the U.S., if not the world!

A blend of 85% Sangiovese, 12.5% Merlot and 2.5% Syrah.

WS 92
Wine Spectator
Polished, refined and open-textured, brimming with strawberry, raspberry and peppery floral flavors that flow easily through the long, expressive finish. Drink now through 2016.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2006 Sangiovese is dark ruby-colored with a fragrant nose of cigar box, damp earth and smoky black cherry. Supple, ripe, and intense on the palate, it has plenty of savory, spicy cherry fruit, some underlying structure, and exceptional length. It will evolve for several years and drink well through 2018.

Leonetti Cellar, Washington
Leonetti Cellar Winery Image
Exclusive production of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot have been the hallmark of Gary Figgins' Leonetti Cellar winery in the suburbs of Walla Walla. Grapes from his own vineyard and from other nearby properties are used to create these rich and robust varietal wines. The attractive new winery building made of native stone houses barrel storage and fermenting tanks.

Responsible for some of Washington’s most highly acclaimed wines, the Walla Walla Valley has experienced a surge in popularity in recent years and is home to both historic wineries and younger, up-and-coming producers.

The Walla Walla Valley, a Native American name meaning “many waters,” is located in southeastern Washington; part of the appellation actually extends into Oregon. Soils here are well-drained, sandy loess over Missoula Flood deposits and fractured basalt.

It is a region perfectly suited to Rhône-inspired Syrahs, distinguished by savory notes of red berry, black olive, smoke and fresh earth. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot create a range of styles from smooth and supple to robust and well-structured. White varieties are rare but some producers blend Sauvignon Blanc with Sémillon, resulting in a rich and round style, and plantings of Viognier, while minimal, are often quite successful.

Of note within Walla Walla, is one new and very peculiar appellation, called the Rocks District of Milton-Freewater. This is the only AVA in the U.S. whose boundaries are totally defined by the soil type. Soils here look a bit like those in the acclaimed Rhône region of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, but are large, ancient, basalt cobblestones. These stones work in the same way as they do in Chateauneuf, absorbing and then radiating the sun's heat up to enhance the ripening of grape clusters. The Rocks District is within the part of Walla Walla that spills over into Oregon and naturally excels in the production of Rhône varieties like Syrah, as well as the Bordeaux varieties.
