Sangiovese 2015, Il Granaio, Super Tuscan style blend
Il Granaio (The Barn) is our bottling of a Super Tuscan style wine—Sangiovese blended with nontraditional varietals. Our 2015 Il Granaio is 75% Sangiovese, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot. The wine was barrel aged for 25 months to integrate the varietals and add depth. Though ready to drink in the near term, its rich, ripe flavors will reward further cellaring.
The nose offers restrained red fruit infused with rich notes of cedary oak, tobacco and spices. Flavors of cherry, dark berry, coffee and savory herbs meld with vibrant acidity to create a luscious, balanced and seamlessly integrated wine. This unique blend of varietals produces a complex wine with a rustic elegance and a touch of finesse.
