2019 Sangiovese "Marmellata"
If Dos Oakies is King, Marmellata is Queen. Richer, more opulent fruit wafts from the glass, mingling with notes of chocolate, baking spice, coffee, and vanilla. Marmellata is known for being our jammiest Sangiovese, with a beautiful velvet mouth-feel. Grapes for this selection were originally sourced from Biondi Santi in Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy. This wine is a perennial favorite for our Big Nut club members, and it rivals Dos Oakies as the first to sell out. 100% Sangiovese Grosso.
“Just a bit pulled back in ripeness relative to its 2019 cellarmates, the Noceto Marmellata is a lithe, medium-bodied Sangiovese that eschews heady richness and keys instead on bright, fairly vigorous, red cherry fruit accented with scattered touches of lightly dusty soil. It may be a bit overmatched by heavier foods, but the wine will pair nicely with sundry, slightly lighter veal recipes and will find a comfortable place alongside a serving of a cheesy eggplant parmesan.” Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine - 88 points | 1 puff
