2016 Sangiovese, Isabella Francesca Vineyard, Contra Costa county
New Release! Sangiovese is such a versatile grape, and while I adore young Sangiovese, I can also make a case for being patient and allowing it to age a bit. This Sangiovese was aged in neutral French oak barrels for 18 months and will fulfill the traditional Italian Sangiovese connoisseur’s palate. This wine conveys aromas and flavors of dried cherry, potpourri, leather, thyme, tomato, pepper and blooming roses.
