Origin: California - Sonoma
Primary Varietal: Sangiovese
Ray and Lori Teldeschi planted the Sangiovese especially for us in 1997, on their beautiful eastern-bench ranch. Sangiovese means “blood of Zeus” (whew!) When the grapes are first crushed, the juice indeed is quite “bloody” in color. The resulting wine is very spicy with a strong backbone of the right amount of acid and tannin. We blend a small (7-10%) amount of Cabernet Sauvignon, grown in the block of land adjacent to the Sangiovese, to add to the character of the wine. Serve this with spicy and/or tomato-based dishes.
