Frankly, we have not tasted all of the Sangiovese wines from California, but we do know that this wine shows the true varietal character that we have found only in Italy. This wine expresses the essence of the great Sangiovese grape with its delicate nose, rich color, and seductively soft mouth feel.

2005 Sangiovese

Long Meadow Ranch Sangiovese has often been called "California's Best Sangiovese."

Frankly, we have not tasted all of the Sangiovese wines from California, but we do know that this wine shows the true varietal character that we have found only in Italy. This wine expresses the essence of the great Sangiovese grape with its delicate nose, rich color, and seductively soft mouth feel.

We have paired this elegant Sangiovese with a first course of carpaccio made from Long Meadow Ranch Grass-fed Highland Beef. We also enjoy our Sangiovese paired with roasted chicken or quail as a main course. We have even served it with rhubarb and strawberry shortcake for dessert.

Don't miss the opportunity to try this exquisite, very-limited production wine (just 50 cases).

Tasting Notes
This wine has a youthful, brilliant ruby color in the glass. This is a cool growing season version of LMR's Sangiovese showing plenty of ripe fruit and layers of aromatic complexity. The red fruit of strawberry and cherry are complemented by vanilla, anise, dried citrus peel, blackberry briar, sea spray, black smoky tea, and rhubarb. A soft full entry becomes characteristically more focused on the mid palate. The finish delivers a mouthwatering burst of ripe cherries and apricot nectar which invites another sip. - Ashley Heisey
