2011 Sangiovese
About This Wine:
Sangiovese (pronounced san-joh-VAY-zeh) is the great showman of Tuscan viticulture, and the basis for regal Brunello di Montalcino as well as the humble Chianti. The Cypress Ranch is situated in Pope Valley in the North East corner of Napa, where it is exposed to dramatic daily temperature fluctuations, with cool nights and very warm days. These weather spikes are tempered by mild breezes off the Palisades, which help to lengthen the growing season and produce some of Napa Valley's greatest wines. Barrel-aged for 15-months in French oak (30% new), this delicate medium-bodied vintage displays a ruby-fruit composition and a savory spice to the finish - like sweet paprika. Hints of bananas foster, ripe raspberries, dried herbs and a subtle minerality make this the perfect accompaniment to warm weather al fresco dining. Savor this with all of your favorite Italian dishes, including chicken, fish, pork, pastas, and well-aged cheeses. Bellissimo!
