Bottle Jack Sangiovese
The 2013 Sangiovese was produced from Brunello Clone Sangiovese grown in the Santa Clara Valley near Uvas Canyon. The wine was fermented in three different lots with separate yeasts including a clone isolated from Brunello Italy. The cap was punched down into the must by hand one to three times per day. Fermentation took place over a 12 to 16 day period, then the free run was separated from the skins and the skins were pressed. The wine was separated by yeast strain throughout barrel aging. The wine was bottled after 22 months of aging without fining or filtering. Tasting Notes Cherry fruit, dried cranberries, herbs and a crisp acidity.
