Wine Review: This bright cherry red Sangiovese is a perfect food wine. It opens with a very fragrant black raspberry bouquet with a hint of cherry as well. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty red raspberry and tart cherry blend with a hint of oak in the background. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins show nice length. This is a very easy going wine. It would pair nicely with a thick cut of prime rib. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Intense ruby red with violet reflections. Bouquet: Intense, fresh, and fruity with typical varietal characteristics of violet, cherry, and plum. Taste: Gentle, full and soft, with surprising length. Ideal with wild game and aged cheeses.
