Winemaker Notes

Very dark color that any Brunello from the finest of vintages would envy. The nose bursts with bright, freshly macerated ripe strawberries and Bing cherries. There is a sense of stoney minerality that you'll positively love. On the palate, reserved sweet fruit. Ripe and plentiful "Brunello" style tannin. Possessing beautiful precision and focus, this Sangiovese epitomizes leanness and power. A paradox in a glass! Being a "dream vintage", the 2010 Sangiovese may be Leonetti's finest to date and will age for decades if you can keep your hands off it.

Blend: 89% Sangiovese, 11% Syrah

Critical Acclaim

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
One of the top renditions of the variety outside of Italy, Chris’s 2010 Sangiovese (89% Sangiovese and 11% Syrah) spent 22 months in a combination of new French oak Puncheons and neutral French oak Botti, which are the equivalent of foudre in French and are very large oak casks. Showing a deep black cherry driven core of fruit that’s intermixed with notions of spice box, aged beef, leaf tobacco and dusty minerality, it flows onto the palate with the expected Sangiovese edge and dusty tannin, yet also possesses fantastic fruit and a seamless, elegant profile. Already reasonably approachable, it should have 10-15 years of prime drinking.

Walla Walla Valley Wine

Columbia Valley, Washington

View all products

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.
