Sangiovese 2014, Dry Creek Valley
This 100% Sangiovese was produced from fruit grown in two exceptional small plantings in Dry Creek Val- ley—Teldeschi Vineyard and Spadoni Vineyard.
In the early 1990’s, lifelong grapegrower Ray Teldeschi got Sangiovese budwood from me off Norton Ranch, and planted it on his “Home Ranch” that is next door to our winery on the Dry Creek bench. The southwest exposure and excellent drainage of the site helps the finicky Sangiovese vines fully ripen the grapes every year.The Spadoni Vineyard is a tiny planting on the hillside behind the home of long time friends Ken and June Spadoni. They planted an acre of Sangiovese on the western edge of Dry Creek because of a love for the wine, and meticulously farm this small plot.
The perfect wine for pairing when you aren’t sure what will go with dinner, this delicious Sangiovese will bring on the best in a classic Italianate pasta, smoked brisket, barbecued ribs or grilled vegetables tossed with sliced sausage.
