Sangiovese, first planted in 900 BC, has a long and storied history beginning in an area of Italy now known as Tuscany. Fast forward to the late 1800s and 1900s, when more than four million Italians immigrated to the United States - bringing with them the Sangiovese vines that were the basis for winemaking in California.
Our 2011 Tre Anelli Sangiovese offers aromas and flavors of blackberry, plum, and cloves - not to mention hints of sage and blood orange. Its velvety mouth-feel and acidity make it a fabulous wine to pair with many of your favorite fall foods including Porchetta-Style Pork Roast or Tuscan Lemon Chicken.
