100% Sangiovese from the Eakle Ranch, a wine that asks to be shared with delicious food. Think roasted pork or perhaps Gnocchi with a sage and butter sauce.
This is a bright wine begging to be paired with food. It opens with violet and Rainer cherry aromas, and shows bracing mineral complexity on the mid-palate, finishing with bright acidity, dusty vanilla, and grapefruit pith.
Berries were 100% destemmed to tank and fermented over the course of 19 days. Upon pressing, the wine was racked to French oak barrels, of which 25% were new, where it rested for 24 months prior to bottling.
