September 2021 Wine of the Month: 2019 American Sangiovese
Sangiovese – a traditional Italian varietal that we at Balistreri have been producing since our second vintage in 1999! Sourced from old vines in the Amador Country growing region of California, these grapes were crushed and fermented here in Colorado and aged for 2 whole years in the barrel.
A Classic Italian Grape for Great Italian Dishes
The extended time in old oak barrels presents a rustic sensation of roasted cherries, almonds, fresh earth, and tobacco – akin to its classic Chianti counterparts. While this rustic Sangiovese will pair with large pasta dishes and heavier foods, we think it also makes a great after dinner digestif. Cheers!
