(2009 Vintage) 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.
Planet Grape(2013 Vintage) Full, supple and fresh with notes of red cherry, pink rose, orange peel and cedar.
