Long Meadow Ranch Sangiovese has often been called "California's Best Sangiovese."

Frankly, we have not tasted all of the Sangiovese wines from California, but we do know that this wine shows the true varietal character that we have found only in Italy. This wine expresses the essence of the great Sangiovese grape with its delicate nose, rich color, and seductively soft mouth feel.

We have paired this elegant Sangiovese with a first course of carpaccio made from Long Meadow Ranch Grass-fed Highland Beef. We also enjoy our Sangiovese paired with roasted chicken or quail as a main course. We have even served it with rhubarb and strawberry shortcake for dessert.

Don't miss the opportunity to try this exquisite, very-limited production wine (just 218 cases).

Wine Profile

Vineyard Notes The 2008 harvest was a year of extremes. We entered the season with a 30 percent reduction of annual rainfall and frosty conditions through March and April. The summer continued to be cooler than average, with erratic temperatures through our Indian summer, resulting in low yields from small clusters and small grapes at moderate sugars. But, the cool weather also extended harvest which gave us longer hang time to produce high quality red wines with great balance and flavors.
Production Notes Perfect with roasted poultry, wood oven-baked pizza, and pasta.
Winemaker Notes “The youthful red hues of this Sangiovese are consistent with its fruity and vibrant nature. The varietally classic nose shows off black cherry, dried roses, black pepper, minerality and smoky black tea. All of these bright and pure flavors persist on the palate. The texture is silky, smooth and coating. The progression leads to a compelling combination of minerality and mixed red fruits on the finish. Mouthwatering, structured and layered, this Sangiovese exemplifies personality of place and varietal authenticity.” -Ashley Heisey
