Wine Description

(From 2010 Vintage) Our Chianti-inspired "normale" Sangiovese displays hints of chocolate with a fruit forward cranberry-cherry character. Highly versatile with food.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2009 Vintage) 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 2010 vintage is Noceto's 21st 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 61% estate grapes, 26% from neighboring vineyards, and 13% from the Gemilli Vineyard in Hollister.
