Type: Red Wine
Grape: Sangiovese/Montepulciano/Sauvignon Blanc/Dolcetto/Trebbiano
The Sangiovese, Montepulciano, Dolcetto and Trebbiano come from Fox Hill Vineyard, located between Hopland and Ukiah in Mendocino. The soil is mostly sandstone, with rocks and pebbles found everywhere, including quartz. The vineyard is farmed organically. Mi Hija Vineyard is a neighboring site located in the Redwood Valley of Mendocino. The Sauvignon Blanc from Mi Hija elevates the wine by adding a pretty floral note. The vineyard is farmed biodynamically.
The Sangiovese, Dolcetto and Sauvignon Blanc were all picked on the same day. The three varieties fermented together whole cluster. The next week, the Montepulciano and Trebbiano were picked together. The grapes were layered whole cluster, then put into a sealed stainless tank where carbonic fermentation occurred. The wine aged in concrete tank.
This juicy co-ferment walks the line between a dark rose and a light, fresh red, and is best served lightly chilled. Strawberry agua fresca on the nose, and notes of strawberry sorbet & fuji apple on the palate.
