The 2014 Villa Ragazzi Sangiovese has considerable charm and freshness, with an intriguing earthiness that hints at its Italian heritage. Grown and produced in very small amounts since 1989, Villa Ragazzi Sangiovese has a full body and intense color. This is due to low yields, tiny berries, and the vineyard site's suitability for growing high-quality Sangiovese, rare in Napa Valley. This is a wine with serious aging potential - and offers great pleasure now. It will reward you with expansive aromas if you decant it, or give it a few minutes to open up in your glass. TASTING NOTES: This vintage shows Sangiovese's typical spicy, red fruit characters and clean, bright finish due to the varietal’s natural bracing acidity, with a hint of French oak and the true red color typical of this unique Rodeno clone. This is a wine with serious aging potential and offers great pleasure now. It will reward you with expansive aromas if you decant it, or give it a few minutes to open up in your glass. The Rodenos were the first to plant Sangiovese in Napa Valley, in 1985. Their proprietary clone, low vigor and low yielding, produces small amounts of outstanding Sangiovese known for its beautiful ruby color, fine tannins, brisk acidity, age worthiness, and food friendliness. Although the Sangiovese (100% varietal) has been Villa Ragazzi's mainstay since the first vintage in 1989, the Rodenos also produce about 50 cases/year of a super-Tuscan blend called Faraona, and a crisp, dry Rosato di Sangiovese. They grow Cabernet Sauvignon in their Oakville vineyard for Robert Mondavi Winery.
