The nose of our 2014 Sangiovese exhibits black cherry with a hint of black pepper spice with an underlyer of forest floor earthiness. On the palate, the black tart cherry fruit dominates the entry while the grippy tannin provides provides structure and depth to the wine allowing layers of tart cherry fruit, bittersweet chocolate, sweet tobacco, and black spices to be uncovered on the mid-palate. Hints of oregano and thyme linger in the finish with a bright acidity providing length and structure in this medium-long finish. One can pair this wine with almost any Italian fare including fresh pastas, spicy sausage, and cured meats.
90 points & Editor’s Choice, Wine Enthusiast Magazine - This new wine from the winemaker of Sol Rouge is extreme in ripeness and fruitiness, smelling like dried plums and tasting like grape popsicles without being overtly sweet. It should taste really good with slow-cooked barbecue. It's very full bodied but not very tannic, so it has a smooth texture.
