2020 Girasole Vineyards Sangiovese
GOLD & 91 POINTS! 2022 East Meets West Wine Competition
Vibrant colors of red rose and ruby jewel tones. Aromas of sweet red cherries, wild raspberries and rose petals explode out of the glass. At first sip, the taster is rewarded with flavors of strawberry, plum and cherries. On the midpalate, this wine is framed by soft tannins and lively acidity. A slight touch of oak rounds out the finish but the clean, bright fruit remains the star of the show.

james dinserOn the nose; strawberry, ripe cherry, tobacco, leather. On the pallet; raspberry, mulberry, dark cherry, black pepper, and terracotta. Lots of red and black fruit, gradually gripping and releasing tannins, and a long peppery finish. I could drink this with friends all day.
