Sangiovese (Passione) 2016

  • Urban Press 2016 “Passione” Sangiovese – Chalk Hill:


    As is typical with most Sangiovese, this wine leaves much mystery to be discovered with a very light floral nose that only gives a hint of fresh figs and underlying spice. Upon hitting the palate, this wine opens up with bright notes of ripe strawberry tamed by more acidic flavors of pepper, tobacco, and sour cherry. Much as its name suggests, “Passione” is Italian for passion, which this wine clearly
    exhibits in its lush, warm finish which leaves a lingering sensual note of warm earth on the palate. 15.8% ABV
