This is our first ever Sangiovese and we think you will love it. Sangiovese has always been at the heart of our Creekside Red but in 2014 the quality was so exceptional, we had to bottle some up by itself. Sangiovese is made famous in the region of Tuscany in Italty. If you’ve ever had a Chianti then you have drunk sangiovese. The grapes for this wine were sourced from the heart of California’s Wine Country.
The wine exhibits classic Sangiovese aromas of bright strawberries and spice, with hints of olives and black pepper. In the mouth the wine is medium bodied with rich earthy aromas and tea leaves. Aged in 30% new French oak barrels, the wine will continue to soften and gain complexity in the bottle with expected peak drinking window of 2017 to 2020.
