2016 Sangiovese

2016 Sangiovese

Like a good Italian meal - low and slow - this 30 month barrel aged Sangiovese harmonizes on the nose and palate with wonderful depth and layers.  Offering notes of dark cherry, sandalwood, grilled herbs, dark chocolate, evergreen and petrichor.  Charcoal minerality adds another dimension to this deep, rich Sangiovese, which is wonderfully full without being at all heavy.

Winemaker Notes
Hand harvested and destemmed completely, cold soaked for 5 days with daily pump over circulating and homogenizing the juice before inoculation. At onset of fermentation the grapes are lightly foot stomped and then punched down 2 times per day at peak, 1 time per day toward the end of fermentation. Pressed at dryness and transferred to 325 gallon concrete amphora and 60 gallon barrels. After 12 months, the wine is racked, and then blended, before additional aging for another 24 months.
