Today’s Seghesio Family Vineyards 2011 Alexander Valley Sangiovese is a fantastic expression of the extraordinary Italian Sangiovese grape. As with its Italian counterpart, today’s Sangiovese is a wine that is made for enjoying with a great meal. There is also plenty of juicy red fruit to be enjoyed here.
The Seghesio Family is one of Sonoma County’s longest-standing winemaking families. They planted their first vineyards in 1885 - and for five generations they’ve been perfecting their art of grape growing and winemaking. Today’s wine is a great reminder of just how good Seghesio’s wine can be.
At today’s special price, we recommend this wine as one to stock up on. We’ll be keeping a few cases on hand for company dinners and fall and winter celebrations.
Dark crimson with a slighty opaque heart. At the edges, a fine ring of ruby cuts an elegant circle around the wine.
Dark fruit reduction of black cherry, blackberry, plum and cranberry with dusty bramble, pencil shavings, flint, cedar and fine white pepper.
Bing cherry juice, raspberry and young strawberry with black cherry, underripe blackberry, cedar, baker’s chocolate with subtle hints of cinnamon and black pepper.
Long and full of juicy red fruit flavors that go on and on for a very long time.
Are you kidding? Pasta with meat sauce all the way with this food-fantastic pairing buddy!
