Sangiovese Private Reserve 2018
The mist hung heavy on the valley floor, green hilltops peeking through at irregular intervals. The silence was breathtaking.

A subtle pale ruby hue, vibrant if restrained aromas of vanilla, strawberry tart, and polished cherrywood ascend from the glass. An appropriate pop of acidity defines the palate, rolling effortlessly into pure red fruits. Tannins and soft and welcoming as a feather pillow linger and leave the taster with delightful hints of hibiscus flower.
Sometimes less is more, and with Sangiovese, we strive to produce the most elegant, balanced versions as a proper homage to their noble Tuscan brethren. This is in contrast to some that make every effort to produce a hugely tannic and powerful wine from this more delicate grape variety.
Food Pairing Notes
A perfect choice for a truffle ravioli or the thinnest cut of steak tartare available.
