Tasting Notes

The 2022 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. Spice and leather notes linger to a soft finish.

Vineyard Notes

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.

Winemaker Notes

After being hand harvested, the 2022 Sangiovese underwent a long, cool fermentation to preserve aromatics. Following pressing, the wine underwent MLF in barrel, followed by 14 months of aging in neutral French oak.
