Sangiovese 2018

Her emerald eyes glanced up from the magazine as the old train cars bobbled over a section of uneven track. Turning to look out the window, her jaw dropped with amazement at the sheer drop, perhaps five hundred feet, to the cerulean Mediterranean below, a few small fishing boats bobbing lazily in the small swells.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Showing a delicate, somewhat transparent pale ruby in the glass, harmonious aromas of strawberry and fresh, wild mint transport the mind to a pastoral serenity before the first sip is even enjoyed. Sipping might be a difficult endeavor with this wine, as it is shows perfectly balanced aromas of raspberry pie and cherry cola that make deliberate tasting something requiring saintlike patience.
Winemaker Notes
Italy is well known for the beauty of its thousands of miles of diverse and picturesque coastlines, some of which are dotted with small villages, others of which are dotted with vineyards. We feel the diversity of flavors in this delightful Sangiovese speaks to the equally diverse (and equally beautiful) scenery of the Italian coastline. This example, from the fantastic 2018 vintage, is harvested from some of the finest vineyards in Temecula Valley.
Food Pairing Notes
Served alongside wild boar ravioli that patience might be even further tested.
