For the record: Ragù branded pasta sauce is gross.

Hopefully this Sangiovesse isn't the same. Does anyone have any notes and/or experience with this wine?

Thanks in advance.

So Woot has selected wine that the producer can only ship to eleven states and DC? That is a huge bummer, Woot...

It is a shame that this fantastic wine (one of our favorites) can be shipped to so few states. Silver lining: one of those states is Texas! In for 2!

No, it's not a mistake. You'll find that the regulatory environment remains in flux and constantly changing. We are purposely taking the high road by being conservative for now.

* stay tuned *

Sorry for the inconvenience. We are working hard to increase this list in the short term.

Sigh. Take a stroll through authentic Italian cuisine and you'll find that the term "ragu" has been hijacked and branded by a major food producer.

The winemaker is not referring to that yucky stuff in a jar, but rather a complex meat-based sauce, often from the Bolognese region.

This Sangiovese goes with everything. Very true to the varietal but has some punch with a little bit of Cab Sauv and tiny bit of Cab Franc. I know you will enjoy

According to the Spelletich website, the 2007 Sangiovese is $22 per bottle, not $25 as is posted on the Woot deal. Therefore, unless I'm missing something, the discount from list is 36.4%, not the 44% that is claimed.

Kristen,

Our mutual friend from Ladera thinks that the 2013 vintage will be just like the 2007.

What are your thoughts?

Can't ship to Wisco either... one of the most lackadaisical drinking law states in the country. Bummer, I wanted this!

I am not sure...I normally don't like comparing vintages...but it's possible...similar temps and time line. 07 was amazing...but looks like 12 & 13 have alot of promise!

See earlier in the thread - there are some legislative/compliance issues afoot and WD is playing it safe rather than fast and loose. Hopefully for all those in the affected states it will be resolved soon. What you can do to help is pester your legislators to enter the 21st century with their liquor laws.

This is complicated stuff. The briefest of summaries is this: for a winery to ship directly to you, they need a permit for each individual state that requires them. This is a distinct license from a retailer who wants to ship wine into the state (think Joe's Online Wine Emporium). Wine.woot operates as an intermediary between a winery and the consumer, and at no point owns the wine. They help the wineries connect to new customers and ship using the winery's own licenses. Recently some states have placed extra restrictions on "third party marketers", which may or may not accurately describe wine.woot, resulting in WD's decision to stay on the good side of all possible legal interpretations and his subsequent post in yesterday's thread about a severely reduced state list. Everybody is hoping it gets resolved soon, not the least is WD - this is his livelihood, after all.

*Note* I am not a lawyer, and this is my summary of my impression of the issues. There's a thread on this under the World of Wine Woot tab. Check there for more info.
