2009 Ferrari-Carano Winery Siena Sonoma County
|Vineyard:||Ferrari-Carano Vineyards & Winery|
From our valley floor and mountainside vineyards, our vineyards for our SIENA are farmed in shallow, rocky, low-vigor soil that adds impressive depth and concentration of flavor intensity to the wine. A moderate summer in 2009 had our Sangiovese and Malbec grapes hanging on the vine up to two weeks later than usual. This extra hang time concentrated flavors and softened tannins. We finished picking all of the SIENA vineyards by the first of October. The result of this vintage year was vibrant and expressive wines that have great richness and elegance.
BackgroundFerrari-Carano’s Italian heritage is reflected in this Sangiovese-based, easy-sipping blend. Select lots of grapes are chosen from our vineyards in Alexander, Dry Creek and Russian River Valleys to create a beautifully-balanced and medium-bodied wine.
