Sangiovese


...Loading

Noceto's flagship Noceto Sangiovese is modeled after the Tuscan Chianti – medium-bodied, fruit-packed, easy-drinking, well-balanced, and highly versatile with food. This wine is widely regarded as "the best Sangiovese in California." (Dan Berger, Darrell Corti, Mike Dunne, Elaine Taylor). The 2011 vintage is Noceto's 22nd vintage release. Grapes were sourced from 16 separate lots of six different clonal selections. Each lot was harvested and fermented separately, then later selectively blended. The resulting blend is 100% Sangiovese and consists of 65% estate grapes, 25% from neighboring vineyards, and the remaining 10% from the Gimelli Vineyard in Hollister & Masut Vineyards in Mendocino County.

Noceto's answer to a Brunello style Sangiovese, the Riserva displays classic Italian Sangiovese characteristics with a hint of California. With more body and complexity than the regular Noceto Sangiovese bottling, the 2010 Riserva Noceto Sangiovese displays a medium-deep crimson color, with red cherry and cranberry fruit aromas that lead to rich, dark cherry-berry flavors. The palate is accented by subtle oak and spice.

The Dos Oakies block was planted in 1987 with a Sangiovese Grosso Brunello selection originally sourced from the Il Poggione estate, one of the three original producers of Brunello di Montalcino. A briefcase import in the early 1970’s, ten vines were planted at Montevina, and it is from these that we got our original cuttings.

With vines sourced from the Isole e Olena vineyard in the heart of the Chianti region of Italy, this limited-production Sangiovese is produced solely from the Hillside block of our estate.

The Marmellata block was planted in 1989 with the Sangiovese Grosso cuttings which were originally sourced from the Biondi Santi vineyard, the estate where Brunello di Montalcino was reputedly born. The name, meaning 'marmalade' in Italian, reflects the wine's jammy, fruit-forward qualities.

Misto Sangiovese is Vino Noceto’s ongoing “experiment” in making a traditional Chianti wine. Historically, Chianti wines from the mid-19th century through most of the 20th century included at least 70% Sangiovese plus Canaiolo Nero and the white grapes Malvasia and Trebbiano. Since 2000, Vino Noceto has experimented with varying percentages, finally settling on a field blend of about 10% white grapes (Malvasia and Trebbiano) and 90% red grapes (Sangiovese plus a little Canaiolo Nero).

Fun Sangiovese Facts

Did you know? Sangiovese is the only grape varietal named after a god. The root of the word comes from the latin words "sanguis" and "jovis" - meaning the "Blood of Jove." The Roman god Jove was the equivalent of the Greek god Zeus.
