We chose an Italian clonal selection from the Brunello di Montalcino region in Tuscany for our Sangiovese vines. This clonal selection thrives below the Stags Leap District palisades, where it is planted, producing intense but small yields. Our 2007 vintage starts with aromas of cherries and strawberries, mixed with mineral and wet stone. Softer tannins are countered by bright acidity, giving this wine an overall balance which is highlighted by grace and elegance. Dominant cherry flavors with subtle sweet oak and vanilla, round out the finish.
