2012 SANGIO degli ANGELI

BACKGROUND
Block A, the hilltop directly behind Ruben Solorzano’s house, was planted expressly to make La Croce.  The ridgeline is planted to Sangiovese in order to ensure sun exposure all day, accelerating the ripening of the fruit to catch up to Syrah.  Ruben planted La Croce’s Syrah component on either hillside, east and west facing, leading up to the Sangiovese crest.  First harvested in 2006, we found this high density Sangiovese so compelling that, beginning in the 2008 harvest, we kept some aside to try it monocepage.  We labeled the wine Sangio degli Angeli, after Marilyn Stolpman’s Italian family’s surname.  Sangio degli Angeli translates to “Blood of the Angels”.
 
VINTAGE
The moderate growing season of 2012 allowed for a picture perfect harvest.  Ruben and Sashi coordinated picking schedules as sugars slowly climbed.  The resulting wines show off a sense of effortless purity.
 
AT THE WINERY
The high density Sangiovese vines carry very little fruit and ripen one to two weeks prior to the older blocks.  The fruit carries more intensity and finer tannins which is why Sashi opted to employ larger 500L puncheons rather than regular barrels.  The large 500L puncheons retained the structure and freshness of the wine.
 
SENSORY
Sangio degli Angeli carries an even fresher, softer profile than the Estate Sangiovese with delicate layers of flavor that feather across the palate.  Tantalizing Raspberry Sorbet lends excitement to the plush red cherry profile.
