As you swirl you’ll see the beautiful dark, deep ruby color and pick up the aroma of dill, lavender, floral, elderberry, and yes, bacon fat. You may detect flavors of cranberry, tart cherry, blackberry, and strawberry and pick up the soft tannin in the mouth, with tart blueberry (acidity) in the lingering finish.
Our Sangiovese is crafted in a Super-Tuscan style with 7.8% Merlot. This blend aged 22 months in a 3 year-old French oak barrel (which at that point is essentially neutral).
