Quick Overview

The rich, red-fruited 2016 Walla Walla Sangiovese is a more robust style of Sangiovese. The nose wafts with subtle savory tones and complex earthy aromas of forest floor and fallen black raspberries. Medium-bodied in the mouth, the wine shows a good line of acidity through to the back end, exuding a tart black cherry and mineral core over soft red spices. It ends with thoughtfully balanced tannins, food-friendly acidity and lingering oak tones, which add to the complexity on the finish. Just over 900 cases were made.
Leonetti Sangiovese 2016

Details

Dazzling deep ruby in color. The nose is loaded with bright red fruits and a kiss of vanilla bean. The palate is creamy and acidic like a splendidly satisfying sorbet. Refreshing and impeccably balanced, this is a stellar example of one of our favorite varieties. The 2016 Sangiovese was such a shining star that it stands alone in the blend for this vintage. This wine, 100% varietal, for the first time includes fruit from the winery’s recently planted Holy Roller Vineyard. The aromas are captivating, with penetrating notes of pure black cherry along with plentiful herb, tobacco and leather accents. Beautifully pure, palate-coating fruit flavors follow, with enough acidity and tannin structure to age well in the cellar. Best after 2024.
