Sangiovese Reserve

One of our more popular Reserves in red wine, Sangiovese’s great natural appeal is augmented in blending with up to 25 percent with one or more Bordeaux varietals, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petit Verdot. The wine’s inherent food-friendliness and generously forthcoming plum and luscious red berry fruit are thereby enriched to offer firm body and elegant texture in classic pairings with roasts, pastas, and grilled fish.

The whole season was ideal, from a frost-free spring with abundant moisture, to a summer with moderate rainfall and steady warm temperature building to extended, emphatic heat, with clear skies permitting optimum pacing of picking in the early fall.
