2016 Michaud Vineyard Sangiovese

Sangiovese grows well in this appellation and develops red cherry, cranberry, and pomegranate flavors. The mineral-like terroir and French oak contribute to a richly textured wine with a lingering finish. Sangiovese’s natural high acidity is moderated by the growing conditions here, resulting in a well structured, yet very accessible wine. 

One of the most frequent comments about this wine is “…hey, this actually tastes like Sangiovese.” 

Wines from this appellation usually develop dramatically after two to three years of bottle aging. They are enjoyable in their youth and this is facilitated by decanting one hour before serving. 

Food pairings include: pizza, grilled steak/prime rib, roast duck, pasta dishes and homemade polenta.
