Wine Review: This opaque and very dark purple colored red blend opens with black cherry and butterscotch bouquet with a hint of smoky oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced, and juicy. The flavor profile is a very tasty cherry vanilla with hints of blueberry. The finish is dry and its cherry flavors linger with no noticeable tannins. This easy drinking red is very food friendly and a real crowd pleaser. Serve with lasagna or your favorite gourmet pizza. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Ferrari-Carano’s Italian heritage is reflected in this Sangiovese-based, easy sipping blend. Select lots of grapes are chosen from our vineyards in Alexander, Dry Creek and Russian River Valleys to create a beautifully-balanced and medium-bodied wine. SIENA has delicious aromas of cherry pie, raspberry jam and spice with lingering flavors of ripe wild berries, pomegranate, vanilla, caramel, and sweet oak. Elevated tones of dried cherries, cranberries come out along with deeper, darker nuances of blueberry preserves, cherry cola and cinnamon. SIENA pairs perfectly with savory Italian food, pasta with flavorful tomato sauces, or pizza. SIENA is also delicious with Chicken Cacciatore.
