Rosato di Sangiovese

Rosato di Sangiovese Wine Details
Price: $14.00 per bottle

Description: A real collaboration: this wine is made from grapes grown at four vineyards: Cherokee Creek Vineyards, San Saba County; Akashic Vineyards and Robert Clay Vineyards, Mason County; and some from our vineyard, Tio Pancho Ranch. It’s a wonderfully fruity lighter style Sangiovese, a clear red, not pink, and rich with cherry flavors. It has just a tinge of sweetness in the finish that zings up the fruitiness. This is your picnic wine! It’ll go with everything on the table and everyone at the table will love it!

Varietal Definition
Sangiovese:
Sanguis Jovis, the Latin origin for the varietal name, literally means “blood of Jove.” Sangiovese is one of the oldest known varietals and it is likely that ancient Etruscan winemakers cultivated it, although the first literary reference to Sangiovese was in 1722. Sangiovese is probably indigenous to Tuscany, whose most famous wine is Chianti. Chianti is a blend that currently contains a minimum of 90% Sangiovese.Sangiovese thrives in hot dry climates. Because these climatic criteria generally enhance quantity, rather than quality, it takes careful cultivation and winemaking techniques to produce really excellent wine from this grape.
