VINTAGE
The 2015 growing season started early in Napa Valley.  As California entered its fourth year of drought, we were fortunate to receive spring rains sufficient to fill our reservoir and saturate the soil.  Consistent sun and warmth throughout the growing season led to an early crop of high-quality grapes.

WINEMAKING
We produce our Sangiovese from a variety of clonal selections, enhancing the complexity of the finished wine. In the winery we handle the fruit gently, destemming without crushing the berries. We adjust our cap management techniques—punchdowns and pumpovers—to get the desired structure and color without overextraction.    

TASTING NOTES
Aromas of cherry, strawberry, blackberry, lavender, mocha and chocolate dance from the glass while supple tannins mingle with flavors of cocoa, cherry and blueberry on the palate.  Mouthcoating, but not grippy, this wine can be enjoyed now or cellared over the next 7-10 years for added complexity.  

PAIRINGS
Enjoy with classic spaghetti & meatballs, pizza alla napoletana, Frascatelli Carbonara, Veal Marsala, and cheeses like Aged Pecorino, Fontina and Boschetto al Tartufo Bianchetto.
