Sangiovese 2015, Dry Creek Valley
This 100% Sangiovese was produced from fruit grown in two exceptional small plantings in Dry Creek Valley—Teldeschi Vineyard and Spadoni Vineyard.
In the early 1990s, lifelong grapegrower Ray Teldeschi got Sangiovese budwood from Fred off Norton Ranch, and planted it on his “Home Ranch” next door to our winery on the Dry Creek bench. The site’s southwest exposure and excellent drainage 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 their 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 out the best in a classic Italianate pasta, smoked brisket, barbecued ribs or grilled vegetables tossed with sliced sausage.
