This is our third vintage producing a rosé made from Sangiovese grapes. Similar to the previous vintage, it was declared the Best of Show Rosé in its first major wine competition. The organically grown grapes, like in previous vintages, are from Gibson Vineyards in Hopland and are farmed under the careful supervision of Bob Gibson, a fourth generation grape grower. The grapes were destemmed and the juice was macerated with the skins. Surprisingly, this vintage was macerated for only an hour before we decided to press it. The juice was cool-fermented slowly for a month and after racking, it was aged in seasoned French oak barrels for 80 days.

Although the maceration time was short, this Sangiovese rosé has the boldest flavors of the three rosés we produce. It has notes of ripe guava, melon, and citrus, layered with flavors of light yeast lees. Gold Medal winner. Best of Show.
