Growing Conditions

Our 2015 Sangiovese Classico comes from a variety of prized vineyards including the Game Farm Vineyard on the Silverado Trail below Rector Dam. In these shallow, rocky soils the stressed vines produce superior quality Sangiovese. Additionally, we source Sangiovese from cooler regions throughout Napa Valley. The 2015 vintage experienced ideal growing conditions which produced perfectly balanced and condensed fruit.

Aging

30% new French and Hungarian oak barrels for 16 months.
