Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The Terra d'Oro Sangiovese is a classic example of intensity tempered by elegance and finesse. This wine expresses inviting aromas of sweet oak with hints of ripe cherries and violets.
Vineyard Notes
The Sangiovese grape has a long history of being widely planted in Tuscany, Italy where it is used in Chianti production. During the Gold Rush in the late 1800s, the varietal was brought to California by Italian settlers. The warm summer days of California’s Amador County, and the rocky shallow soils of the Terra d’Oro vineyards, are superlative for this grape. The vineyard team grooms the Sangiovese vineyards after verasion, dropping clusters to increase concentration and color.
Production Notes
Sangiovese’s berries are notoriously thin-skinned and highly susceptible to sunburn, so the team takes great care in trellising and irrigation to maintain a healthy canopy in order to shade the finicky fruit.
Winemaker Notes
Sangiovese requires time and care to display its richness therefore the winemaking process is gentle and deliberate. The grapes are hand-harvested in the crisp and cool early morning to ensure bright and focused acidity. The fruit is then aged in Hungarian and American oak barrels for 14 months. 30% of the barrels are second-fill, which allows the varietal and vineyard characteristics to flourish. By using a small amount of gentle oak, the flavor integrates more smoothly, keeping the focus on varietal characteristics.
Food Pairing Notes
The Terra d’Oro 2014 Sangiovese is vegan friendly and the perfect wine to pair with many dishes. For a delicious meal, enjoy with veal chops, orzo and Greek olives, or rustic pork ragu and great company!
