2016 - Fantasia

Inspired by the “fantasy wines” of Tuscany, Fantasia (fahnta ZEE ah) is a blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. The Cabernet with its weight provides good structure and balance allowing the Sangiovese to retain its bright tones. Medium bodied, it finishes with great flair and length.

Vintage Notes The near-perfect 2016 growing season started early, saw ideal weather conditions throughout and wrapped up as the valley's first significant fall rainstorm arrived on October 14. Thanks to a relatively steady and mild July and August and then a series of warm days at the end of the growing season, vineyards were able to progress to perfect ripeness. Tasting Notes Smooth and easy, this wine exhibits hints of baking spices on the nose, and flavors of blackberry, plum, and dark cherry. Medium bodied with a lingering finish.
