Sangiovese is the national grape of Italy and it grows everywhere. Americans are still getting to know this delicious varietal that emotes roses and ripe strawberries. We’ve been making Sangiovese from Dan Sanchez’s mountain top vineyard for 11 years. We blended in small amounts of a few varietals to accentuate the fruit flavor of the Sangiovese and give the wine a longer finish. The wine was aged 40 months in used oak barrels, producing subtle influence of oak flavor and a big influence on smoothness. The flavors explode in the middle of your palate leaving no place untouched. Or 2013 Sangiovese pairs beautifully with Italian cuisine. It is ready to drink now and our Clean Wine® techniques assures that this wine will remain delicious well into the 2020’s.
