The 2005 Ferrari-Carano Sangiovese from our mountain vineyards in Alexander Valley displays an atypical darkness, richness and ripeness for the Sangiovese grape. Aromatic characteristics of luscious red and black wild berry fruit with deep, concentrated cranberry, cinnamon and clove are followed by velvety tannins and a tremendously long finish of vanilla bean and dark chocolate.

Our 2005 Ferrari-Carano Sangiovese pairs well with braised, roasted or barbequed meats such as chicken, red meat, fish lamb or pork. Pastas, stews or well-aged medium and strong-flavored cheeses such as Tellagio also pair well.
