2006 Sangiovese

No Longer Available

Tasting Notes

Brick red in color with aromas of dried orange peel, cedar and ripe dark cherries capture this classic old world style Sangiovese.  Polished tannins and a prolonged lingering finish reveal hints of cedar, ripe boysenberries and vanilla.  Pair this wine with classic pasta dishes with a bold tomato sauce.

Winemaker's Notes

The grapes were hand picked at perfect ripeness and full of flavor than sorted and crushed / de stemmed.  Fermentation took place in small 1 ton bins and the wines were fermented to dryness.  The wine was aged for 15 months in small American Oak Barrels.  This blend consists of 100% French Oak.
Alcohol by Volume: 14.8%
