proper Cellaring recommendations
Our Sangiovese is made to age for 20–30 years in your cellar. Of course, there are some vintage-to-vintage variations to this recommendation. Wine should be stored horizontally at 55–57 degrees.

2007 was a special vintage, and the Sangiovese in particular achieved new heights. The wine is dark enough to be mistaken for a Merlot or Cabernet. The aroma is just magnificent and so true to Sangio—dried fruits, cream frosting, and other pure fruit aromas dominate. There’s a driving note of pure ripe strawberries that reminds me of days spent picking them as a teenager in the Klicker Family’s famous strawberry fields just down the road. On the palate, the wine has unbelievable length, glorious acidity, and very fine-grained tannin. Its levity makes it pair with an incredible variety of dishes from red meat to pasta, to heavy fish.
