SKU: WPR16SGSC

Expect to find the classic varietal characteristics of strawberry, cherry and spice in the glass. These aromas are accompanied with cured leather, rose petals and scratched iron on the nose, while the palate develops with wild red strawberry and raspberry, French vanilla cream and a refreshing sprig of spearmint on the finish. Medium bodied with melted tannins. 

Perfectly matched for herbed flavors and anything with tomato sauce, as well as rich roasted meats, cured sausages, hard cheeses such as parmesan or pecorino. 

Wine Profile
Production Notes
The 2016 Reserve is 100% Sangiovese that was aged 40 months in 57% new French oak and 43% neutral French and European oak.
Winemaker Notes
2016 began wet and cool. Bud break came early and crop yields were slightly lower overall, due to spring rains. Moderate, steady summer temperatures meant ripening progressed easily, and a cooler August allowed flavors to develop well.
