Wine Enthusiast 87 points - Richer, fruitier and heavier than Sangiovese really ought to be, but then, this is Alexander Valley, not Tuscany. It’s a big wine, jammy in chocolate-covered cherries and licorice, and while the only thing Italian about it is the acidity, it’s a tasty wine. (Sep 2013)
Our grandfather first worked with Sangiovese in the late 1800's during his tenure as winemaker at Italian Swiss Colony. His Sangiovese plantings on our Home Ranch are the oldest in America, dating back to 1910. They are also the rich source of four unique clones for our subsequent plantings of the varietal. Although Sangiovese typically grows vigorously, the low yielding, shallow soils of our Home Ranch, combined with our small-berried clones, produce wines of intense varietal character.
