Aromas & Flavors
Our Sangiovese displays a unique darkness and ripeness that is not commonly found in a Sangiovese. This wine is luscious with enticing aromas of plums and raspberries enhanced by nuances of vanilla, violets, and toffee. Smooth and powerful, flavors of pomegranate burst forward on the palate, while dried cherries and cola boost the mid palate, leaving a touch of cocoa and leather lingering on a lasting finish.
Delicious with braised, roasted or barbecued meats like chicken, red meat, fish, lamb or pork. Pastas, stews or well-aged medium and strong-flavored cheeses, such as Taleggio, also pair nicely with our Sangiovese.
How It's Made
Upon entering the winery, the hand-harvested grapes are destemmed and cold soaked for three days. Following the cold soak, yeast is added and pump overs commence, one to two times daily, for the duration of primary fermentation. The wine is then drained and pressed to select French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation, and cave aged for 15 months. Lots are kept separate until blending and bottling in February 2020.
The 2018 season began with rainfall accumulating to average amounts by the end of spring. Cool spring weather extended bloom, resulting in a later set, albeit a crop set with good yields. Moderate temperatures during the summer slowed veriason and ripening, indicating a later projected harvest start date than we have seen in many years.
