The 2020 Sangiovese greets us with a bright ruby appearance. Strawberry and a touch of thyme aromas highlight pleasant fruit flavors. The palate remains fresh with natural acidity and light tannins. Vanilla and leather notes linger to a soft finish.
Grown on the banks of the American River, at an elevation of 1,200ft, this is the lowest elevation location we make wine from. The vineyard lies deep in a river valley, on raw granitic soil where warm days are met with cool nights from air draining down from the Sierra Nevada high above. We blended in a small amount of Dolcetto from our Estate to give the wine additional structure and richness.
