"This rare Sangiovese is fat and beautifully flavored with 83% Sangiovese from Dwelley, Desert View and Kiona Vineyards. It is topped with 9% Malbec from Dwelley and Sagemoor Vineyard and an 8% dollop of Goose Ridge Vineyard Syrah. It has a vanilla, coconut nose, a rich blend of ripe strawberries and rhubarb jam in the mid-palate and a savory mouth filling finish. The 2007 Sangiovese earned a double gold and a platinum award and this one is even better. There is a lot of "bang for your buck" with this perfectly balanced rich wine. Roll out your best pizza dough and top it with shredded fontina cheese, Roma tomatoes, Kalamata olives, thin pancetta slices, fresh basil leaves, and a pinch of red pepper flakes. While it is baking, pour a glass of this wondrous Sangiovese and listen to Dean Martin sing, `Everybody Loves Somebody.` VoilĂ ! Procrastinating should be avoided because at this price, it will fly out the tasting room door. ..."If you enjoy dark chocolate covered cherries or a slice of creamy, moist dark chocolate cake this food friendly Sangiovese is for you. Its black cherry, fresh leather nose is so attractive that it seduces you to taste it and ride on its blackberry, clove finish."... "
