We are “on a roll” here at Sottomarino Winery with our eighth wine in a row receiving a 90+ point rating from Wine Enthusiast Magazine, making Sottomarino Winery one of the highest rated Italian varietal based wineries in America! In July, Wine Enthusiast released its rating on our popular Sangiovese, awarding the 2014 vintage a 91 point rating. See details below:

2014 Sottomarino Sangiovese - 91 points

Lake County - $29.00 Retail

“Strong cedar, earth and rosemary aromas meet red- and black-cherry flavors that are focused, concentrated and lingering. This is a muscular, bold wine with an appealing wildland character, firm tannins and good acidity. Best now to 2024.”
