Grape Growers recall that conditions were ideal at the start of 2020, with mild temperatures that led to evenly developed clusters. The low winter rainfall resulted in smaller berries with concentrated flavors. Following an early bud break and warm summer, harvest kicked off at the beginning of August. Although challenged by the two fires during the harvest season, ultimately, most wineries decided to make only their best wines at limited production. This is exactly what Biale did and we know that you will enjoy these wines that express the promise anticipated by the ideal conditions of the early growing season.
The core of this wine was made using whole cluster pressed Sangiovese grapes. The fruit is picked at a low brix level which gives the wine its beautiful natural color and acidity. The winemaker used saignee of Zinfandel to layer color, aroma and flavor. It was fermented in 100% stainless steel barrels. Slow and cool fermentation, using commercial yeast strains, to enhance the fruit characters. Sur lees aged for body and texture.
Vibrant bubblegum color.
