Mission Briefing

Codename:

The 120 Club

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.

Bing cherry juice, raspberry and young strawberry with black cherry, underripe blackberry, cedar, baker’s chocolate with subtle hints of cinnamon and black pepper.

Finish:

Long and full of juicy red fruit flavors that go on and on for a very long time.
