Features

2009 Noceto Sangiovese, Amador County 750ml 4-Pack

Noceto’s flagship Sangiovese is modeled after the Tuscan Chianti Classico — medium-bodied, fruit packed, easy-drinking, well-balanced, and designed to pair with food. The 2009 vintage is Noceto’s 20th vintage release. The wine displays a medium hued cherry red color, with red berry and cherry fruit aromas that lead to bright flavors of rich plum, cassis, and ripe cranberry. The palate is accented by subtle oak and hints of peppery spice.

Vintner Voicemail

Grapes were sourced from 14 separate lots of six different clonal selections. Each lot was harvested and fermented separately, then later selectively blended. The resulting blend is 100% Sangiovese and consists of 51% estate grapes, 35% from neighboring Amador County vineyards, and 14% from the Gemilli Vineyard near Hollister. Upon harvesting, the Sangiovese fruit was cold-soaked and then fermented at 90° F in stainless steel for 7-10 days to preserve the bright varietal character. It was then aged 15 months in French oak 130-gallon puncheons and 60-gallon French and American oak barrels to soften the youthful tannins and gently age the wine.
