2018 Sangiovese, Alpicella Vineyards
Tuscan in style with a classic Sonoma Valley twist, this Sangiovese from Alpicella Vineyards enlightens the senses with seductive scents of ripe berries and blue fruits interlaced with hints of fresh herbs, crushed violets, dark chocolate, and baking spices. On the palate, complex flavors of ripe blueberry, boysenberry, black raspberry, and licorice are layered with distinctive notes of fresh sage, clove, and a kiss of fine oak. Overall, a fantastic balance of opulent flavors, fine tannins, elegant mouthfeel, and a dry finish.
Pairs well with ripe Gorgonzola cheese, wild mushroom risotto, lamb meatballs, braised meats, and other styles of fine Mediterranean cuisine.
