Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Notes of sweet strawberry, rhubarb and allspice are apparent on the nose. In the mouth, the wine is ripe and exuberant, with well-proportioned, tannins. Sweet black cherry, black plum and a hint of anise are present in the persistent finish. Try pairing this wine with grilled pork tenderloin or a rich Bolognese veal, pork and mushroom sugo.
Vineyard Notes
All fruit for the 2010 Napa Valley Sangiovese was grown in one small block at the Antica Vineyard in the Atlas Peak Appellation where rocky, alluvial soils keep the vines small and the fruit concentrated in flavor and aroma.
Winemaker Notes
The 2010 season began with heavy March rains and a cool spring, followed by enough warm weather in May to ensure an excellent fruit set. July and August were cool, with very few heat spikes. September was relatively cool, resulting in an extended period of final maturation. The Sangiovese reached full ripeness in mid-October when it was hand-harvested in the cool morning hours on October 22nd. The final blend is 100% Sangiovese.
