Vineyard Notes
A blend of Sangiovese fruit from our own estate vineyard in the Diamond Mountain District along with fruit from Voyager Vineyard, with a touch of Napa Valley Merlot.
Winemaker Notes
"Following the very small 2015 harvest, it was heartening to see the vines recover and bounce back to produce not only extremely high quality fruit but also some bounty in 2016! Harvest was earlier than we expected, and we observed optimum flavor and phenolic development progress as we harvested. Across the board, the flavors and acids were exceptional, and a delicious balance evolved as the harvest proceeded. Acids are firm and pH is slightly lower, so the wines should be well-structured with very good aging potential. This is an exciting vintage with a lot to like! —Brooks Painter, Director of Winemaking
Other Notes
Sangiovese is an historic red wine grape variety originating in Northern Italy, where it is recognized as the superior variety. It often forms part of a blend to create harmonious, focused food wines.

We bought a few bottles when visiting the Castle last Fall. One was the Sangiovese. We thought it was delicious and have since ordered a case. Though I rated it Pretty Good, if rated according to value, I would say it was Excellent!

Great Tasting wine, the older the bottle the better the taste gets. A great wine to enjoy anytime of the day.

All of the wines we get from our Castello wine club that we have consumed have been excellent. we are letting this, and the other bottles received from our latest club reside in our modest (200 bottle) wine cellar and will have them once aged on special occasions such as holidays and birthdays, etc. The sangiovese is a favorite of the ones in our family who have drunk it.
