Dating back to the Etruscans in the Sixth Century BC, Sangiovese (pronounced san-joh-VAY-zeh) hails from central Italy and is the great showman of Tuscan viticulture. The Cypress Ranch is situated in Pope Valley in the North East corner of Napa, where it is exposed to dramatic daily temperature fluctuations, with cool nights and very warm days. The extreme weather conditions are tempered by mild breezes off the Palisades, which lengthens the growing season and helps to produce some of Napa Valley's greatest wines. A gold medal winner at the 2015 SF International Wine Competition, this vintage was aged in French Oak (30% new barrels) for 2-years. It offers a combination of power and elegance, exhibiting zesty flavors of wild cherry, cranberry and pomegranate, with hints of allspice and smoke that accentuate a long satisfying finish. This vibrant medium-bodied wine will continue to reward through 2022. Enjoy it with barbecued baby-back ribs, grilled meats and vegetables, pasta, antipasti and well-aged cheeses. Saluté!
