Surprisingly delicious. Stands up to food, and has some amazing structure, tannins and velvety finish. I dare you to distinguish this from an Italian Brunello in a blind tasting.

A finer example of how sangiovese should taste, a rarity in California

Everyone liked this one better than the Sangiovese but I didn't. It was a little too earthy for me

Awesome wine. If I had tasted this blind I would definitely not have been able to tell you it was from California. Very true to the typical Sangiovese.
