The Mosby Sangiovese has a lot going on! We detected amazing scents of cocoa, dried cherries, lavender and lilac; these delightful aromas progressed into layered flavors of crushed dark berries, spice and light oak. The full body of this release is nicely balanced by brisk acidity and smooth tannins, making it an ideal wine for food pairing. Our suggestions include beef or game ragus, tomato-based pasta sauces or spicy Tuscan-style chicken. This wine is ready to drink now, but will cellar well for three to five years.
We currently have 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2017 Vintages available
Bill traveled to Italy and worked in conjunction with grape growers there to produce this wine. The grapes are from a vineyard located in the rolling hills of Marche, Italy, and totally pampered by agronomist Dr. Marco Cavalieri. Swept and cooled by breezes off the Adriatic Sea, this area is renowned for its intensely flavored Montepulciano grapes. The intense nose on this vintage displays spice and earth with a trace of cooking chocolate. Purple violets, black licorice and clove lifesavers all come to mind. The brisk acidity and rounded tannins make it possible to cellar this wine for two or three years before popping the cork, but it’s very drinkable now, particularly when paired with a selection of Italian cured meats, Bolognese sauce over pasta or a hearty stew.
2018 is estate grown
We currently have 2014, 2015 and 2018 vintages available.
The 2018 vintage is still predominantly Cannonau (Grenache), but with an added touch of Rossolo (Mourvedre). This addition brings a bit more depth to our Rosato. Deep rose in color with blue tints, the wine has intense strawberry character and a slightly sweet finish. Delicious on its own, we also enjoy pairingour Rosato with grilled sausages, cheeses, or fried chicken. Serve chilled.
