Every year I realize that Sangiovese, besides being my favorite grape to cultivate, is a variety that qualitatively respects vine age and thus expresses its beauty finer every year. As our vines now average almost 20 years in age, the resultant wines are becoming extraordinary. The ’13 is loaded with cranberry, black cherry, pomegranate, and notes of white tea. The palate is so incredibly refreshing and will compliment almost any food. My favorite thing about Sangiovese is how it is able to possess power with levity…. a quality I find in all the finest wines of the world and constantly pursue in my own wines.
