Description 

Tranche Sangiovese
The nose is filled with brooding aromas of wet earth, licorice root, black olive and dark forest fruits. Firm, fleshy tannins are complemented by charred barrel notes, providing wonderful richness and warmth to the palate. Dark fruit flavors of plum and cassis slowly develop into more earth-driven characters of sage and underbrush, intensifying to a rustic, savory finish.


Winemaker Notes

Our Sangiovese grapes are grown on two small terraced blocks on our Blue Mountain Estate Vineyard, at the foothills of the Blue Mountains in Walla Walla. Grapes were harvested by hand in late October and made the short journey to the Tranche winery, which is nestled between the vines at the base of the property. Native fermentation in oak and gentle pumping over of the cap produced a richly aromatic wine, with dark fruit and savory, earth-driven flavors. The Tranche Sangiovese is an authentic and inspired expression of one of Italy's most celebrated varietals.
