2008 Sangiovese Wine



Classic grape of Chianti and other great Tuscan wine, sangiovese has tart berry-cherry flavors with notes of herbs, spice, and damp earth. Marked more by crisp acidity than big, chewy tannins, sangiovese is nonetheless considered a classically structured grape variety. Found mainly in Chianti, but also the basis for other important Italian wines. Brunello di Montalcino is a specific clone of  sangiovese, the variety called Brunello. Successful in Argentina, but California has not yet gotten the knack.

Very Brunello, but already quite approachable, this full ruby-red wine opens with high-toned aromas of red berries, dried herbs and chestnut-vanilla oak. On the palate, dense and sweet, but also quite fresh and supple, with ripe acidity giving shape and definition to the wine's complex flavors of raspberry, sandalwood, redcurrant, and damp forest floor. Finishes quite briskly, with smooth tannins, dusty herbs and spices, and lingering suggestions of minerality. Drinking beautifully now, but has underlying balance and structure to age gracefully for decades. A thoroughly lovely Brunello.
--Ben Giliberti, CW Director of Wine Education


"This beautiful wine presents the round and velvety side of Sangiovese Grosso, with lingering tones of dark fruit, prune, chocolate and spice. The wine shows structure and acidity at the back for long aging potential and sports a modern, soft personality overall."

92 points--Monica Larner, Wine Enthusiast

"This is a delicate, fruity wine with dried strawberries and flowers. Medium body with fine tannins and a clean finish. It's so delicious. Drink or hold."

91 points--James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com
