Ser Gioveto (Sangiovese with some Cabernet and Merlot) delivers thick notes of fruit, herbs and earth and has a textured nose and great depth and dimension. The wine’s structure is thick and solid and those fresh fruit flavors last a long time on the finish. M.L.
 Wine Spectator 90 points (Oct 31 2006)
Aromas of blackberry jam, with hints of mineral. Full-bodied, with lots of fruit and velvety tannins. Give this time. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best after 2008. 3,500 cases made. –JS

Wine maker notes
Following destemming, the berries are softly pressed and fermentation is completed on the skins at 75º - 79ºF. Malolactic fermentation occurs in spring. The wine is aged 9-14 months in barriques, small 225L barrels made of French oak, and further matures in the bottle for approximately nine months prior to release.

Technical notes
13.5% abv
