Our Take on an Italian Classic
This one is for all you foodies out there. It is no secret that Sangiovese is at the top of the list when it comes to food friendly wines. It is the number one most planted grape varietal in Italy, and if we are going to trust anyone with our food and wine, it’s the Italians. But what does it mean to be food friendly? It means that the body, flavors, and textures of this wine pairs with such a large variety of foods it’s very difficult to narrow down exactly what we want you to pair it with!
Our Sangiovese has a medium weighted body, and like many Sangio’s, some savory characteristics. To name a few things you should taste test, cook up a hearty pasta with herbs and tomatoes. If you’re looking for something more, try rich roasted meat, cured sausages and hard cheeses. This Italian classic boasting a rich fruitiness and a balanced, slightly dry finish will stand up on it’s own and will not be overwhelmed by your favorite dish.
Good news to all our vegetarian friends out there, this is also an excellent pairing to vegetarian faire, so break out those braised or roasted veggies, and get ready for your favorite date night pairing!
We love to talk food, but rest assured you do not need any pairing to enjoy this wine on it’s own. Those big, decadent flavors of red cherry, cranberry, bramble will delight your taste buds as they flow into a pleasant tang and long savorable finish.
This will no doubt become a family favorite and your new go - to dinner party star. When tasting our new wines, we like to think of eloquent ways to describe exactly how we feel and what we taste when we sip them. But we will leave you with our resident sommeliers concluding comment, which is simply, “when can I drink it again?”
