- RobertR - An amazing American Sangiovesee
(Posted on 12/3/2015)This wine was aged, more than 30 months in the barrell and starts with aromas of spicy fruit and baking spices. You will note flavors of ripe red fruit, Rhubarb and cranberry that is well balanced with smooth tannins making this perfect for Italian foods like pastas, cheeses, lamb, veal and steaks. This is a great value at this price.
Having made Sangioveses since 1992, this is the first under the pureCru label, a small production lot that we have given the proprietary name of Sangio Vetta meaning Sangiovese at the peak or its pinnacle. In future, as with this, it will be blended in the best way that reflects the style we believe shows it best without having to worry about the percentages of the varietals being a minimum for labeling regulations.
