Our Gemme Cellars 2016 Sangiovese was made mostly with grapes from the Lodi appellation of California. This is a classic Sangiovese already displaying a light red terra-cotta color in the glass. This indication of maturity is revealed in the nose as well, with prune, cherry and strawberry aromas. There is a hint of toasted oak characters all the way through the finish. The attack in the mouth is round and fluid. The wine has a good backbone provided by some mild tannins.
This is a medium-bodied wine with good intensity in the finish. Pair it with meatloaf, roasted chicken breast or pasta. Enjoy it with the featured recipe: Broccoli-Cheddar-Chicken Chowder.
