2019 Sangiovese

Pretty aromas of dark plum, cherry compote, sandalwood, fresh-cut flowers and earthiness.  The seamless structure balances a velvety richness against an ethereal lightness, with a subtle satisfying non-aggressive grip emerging on the finish. The silky caress wraps around the complex flavors to create a beautiful whole.  Pure pleasure!

    The 2019 Sangiovese is lovely. Crushed red berry fruit, spice and sweet floral notes all grace this silky, wonderfully nuanced red. Soft contours and mid-weight structure make the 2019 an absolute delight to taste today. A touch of Cabernet Sauvignon adds structure and depth. The 2019 is beautifully done.
