2019 Estate Sangiovese Rosé
Our 2019 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.
Certified Lodi Rules for Sustainable Winegrowing
The 2019 growing season brought above-average winter rainfall that transitioned into a mildly-cold and wet early spring. The first sign of bud-break was slightly later than prior years, however, with a very warm April our vines responded with rapid growth. May arrived with a strong winter-like storm dropping between two and three inches of rain causing fast growing canopies that required leaf pulling and trimming to open the vine for even ripening. Verasion progressed steadily to harvest which began at the end of July and continued through October, where on average there was moderate daytime warmth and cool evenings that helped retain the winegrapes’ freshness.
“I created two recipes with the same ingredients for the Sangiovese Rosé because I really wanted to showcase the radish tops and how well they pair with the Sangiovese grape.” – Chef Dan Landsberg
