LEONETTI CELLAR Sangiovese, Walla Walla Valley 2012

The 2012 comes from the Seven Hills, Mill Creek, Upland and Serra Pedace vineyards. It is a blend of 80% Sangiovese, 12% Syrah, 8% and the first vintage that they have opted to utilize their estate Aglianico adding in 8%. The wine opens with a ripe nose of red currant, red cherry, black pepper and oak. There is a silky and viscous mouthfeel that leads to flavors of red cherry, anise, cranberry with medium tannins. One of the best, if not the best, Washington Sangiovese out there. Needs another year in the bottle to fully develop, drink in 2016. (Best 2016-2025) - September, 2015 (OB)
