Sangiovese

1276 visitors
Sangiovese is a red wine grape variety originating in Italy. It is most famous as the main component of the Chianti blend in Tuscany, but winemakers outside Italy are starting to experiment with it. Young sangiovese has fresh fruity flavours of strawberry and a little spiciness, but it readily takes on oaky, even tarry, flavours when aged in barrels.
More information on Sangiovese
Food Pairing: Pairs well with pizza, steak, lamb and game meats, spicy cappelini puttanesca or any tomato based pastas.

2003 Sangiovese

Sangiovese, also known as Brunello or Sangioveto, is the primary grape in the famous Chianti appellation in Italy. Sangiovese was brought to California by Italian immigrants, many ...moreof whom settled in the Napa Valley. With the many micro climates that exist in the Napa Valley, Sangiovese thrives and produces great wines. Rutherford Hill’s 2003 Sangiovese shows the full potential of this varietal. Ruby in color, this wine has an aroma profile of strawberry jam, ripe plums that open up into cherries with notes of hazelnut and caramel. In the pallet, the wine is smooth with alcohol and acids existing in complete harmony with the tannins to create finesse in the finish. In other words, “Alzi il vostro vetro a questo vino!” (Raise your glass to this wine!)

2002 Sangiovese

Sangiovese (Sawn-geo-vese) is a light red Italian varietal, usually blended with Barbera, and Nebbiolo to produce a Chianti wine blend. When produced on it's own it produces a lig ...moreht red wine with solid tannins and sharp acids. This Sangiovese displays nice strawberry and earthy characters, with a pleasant soft body. The perfect red wine for the non-red wine drinker, or those times when a big red wine isn't suitable. Enjoy with any pasta, red sauce, or sun dried tomatoes.

2003 Sangiovese

Our Sangiovese is not like other California Sangioveses ours is a Super Tuscan with an attitude! We mean fruit. Produced from an Antinori Grosso clone, this is one big, beautiful w ...moreine. The combination of the quality characteristics from the rocky Howell Mountain soil it comes from and patience during ripening and you get a thoroughly spectacular wine. The color is deep purple. The mouth is silky and slightly exotic with mild pomegranate flavors. The finish literally makes your mouth water. It drinks well now, and should still shine in 8-10 years.

2005 Sangiovese
Pope Valley

Our Sangiovese comes from our Cypress Ranch vineyard in Pope Valley. Sangiovese, as a varietal, is a vigorous vine and will tend to set more fruit than it can ripen properly, so th ...moree vines get thinned throughout the growing season in order to concentrate the flavors in the remaining fruit. The vineyard is on a sloping hillside with ample sunshine, regional traits that the Italians look for when planting Sangiovese.

2005 Rosato

We decided to make a dry Rose for the first time from our 2005 harvest. We immediately pressed the juice off a small lot of Sangiovese grapes as they came into the winery during cr ...moreush and used a few barrels of the red Sangiovese to give it a beautiful rose/salmon tint before bottling. This wine is refreshing and full of fruit –strawberries on the nose with delicious flavors of strawberries and cranberries on the palate and finish. With little residual sugar, this dry wine is perfect for sipping at those backyard barbeques this spring and summer, pairing delightfully with almost anything you can cook up on the grill.

2004 Laraine Sangiovese

A number of years ago, Gerber Vineyards began shifting the emphasis of growing Chardonnay to growing red varietals. After comparing our growing season conditions to other parts of ...morethe world, we surmised that although we have cool nights due to our elevation, our warm and sometimes hot summer days may best lend themselves to varietals which are planted in the Mediterranean regions of Europe.

The 2004 Laraine Sangiovese is blended with small quantities of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon to increase its color, density and structure. It is a lively wine which will accompany grilled meats and fish. I suggest you chill the wine slightly and enjoy it while cooking.
