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 2013 Tre Anelli Sangiovese offers fresh, fruity aromas of tart cherries and cola on the nose, follwed by a slight spiciness. On the palate, this wine presents a subtle earthiness, with hints of tea leaf and sage.
Pairs nicely with rich roasted meats, cured sausages or hard cheeses.
