Pale pink in color, our 2016 Sangiovese Rosé opens with a light fruit and floral aroma. Once on the palate, bright strawberry notes become the main focus and remain through to the finish. As a crisp and refreshing wine, with body in the mid-palate, there is a nice balance that leaves you wanting to have another taste.

Across Jahant Road from our winery in the heart of the Lodi Appellation sits our Sangiovese vineyard. It thrives in our dry region allowing the winegrapes to take their time to develop, budding early and ripening slowly. This lengthy growing season creates richness and intense flavors.
With above average winter rains, we began the 2016 growing season with enough moisture in the soil profile to delay the start of irrigation. This allowed the vines to grow at their own pace until the crucial time when we began spoon feeding water to control vigor. Warm daytime temperatures and cool nights resulted in all varietals ripening quickly in the first half of the season, but as we came closer to fall, the late ripening varietals took their time reaching maturity. What developed was a long harvest, beginning at the end of July and lasting until the end of October, just before the first major fall rainstorm; lucky for us 99% of our vineyards were harvested.  The outcome is a season with average to above-average yields and winemakers please with the quality.
