2017 Noceto Sangiovese
Noceto's 28th vintage of our flagship Sangiovese. Made in the Chianti style -- food-friendly and true to varietal character -- you'll think you're in Italy.
"Baking-spice aromas and rich but bright red-cherry and strawberry flavors define this well-balanced, medium- to full-bodied wine that is true to its Italian roots. Moderate tannins and good acidity will keep it lively when paired with rich food." 90 points - Wine Enthusiast
"The winery flagship shows again winemaker Rusty Folena's deep respect for this grape's heritage and what it can do in the Shenandoah Valley. The estate fruit delivers tart cherry fruit and Italian styled herbaceousness, and easy oak spice and gentle taste character enhances the fruit and herb. It's all drawn together with vibrant food friendly acidity that gives the fruit profile a nice finshing push. It try to keep some of this in my cellar at all times - you might call it my house red. It should be one of yours." 92 points - Rich Cook, winereviewonline.com (1/2021)
