Located near the California Aqueduct, this vineyard receives warm afternoons and cool nights, due to the cool evening breezes coming off the Diablo mountain range. Rod Cardella is a pioneer in Central Valley premium grape growing. With his philosophy of quality instead of quantity he truly is growing some of the best Sangiovese grapes in California. Light red wine displaying nice plum, and cherry aromas. A very versatile wine. Enjoy with cheese, pasta, salmon, chicken, or beef.
Sangiovese (Sawn-geo-vese) is a light red Italian varietal, usually blended with Barbera, and Nebbiolo to produce a Chianti wine blend. When produced on it's own it produces a light red wine with solid tannins and sharp acids. This Sangiovese displays nice strawberry and earthy characters, with a pleasant soft body. The perfect red wine for the non-red wine drinker, or those times when a big red wine isn't suitable. Enjoy with any pasta, red sauce, or sun dried tomatoes.
