2019 Sangiovese (Lahey Vineyards)
The 2019 vintage of Sangiovese has benefitted from 2 years of aging in American and French oak, imparting an additional dimension of smooth balance and complexity to the wine. Reflecting the warm Texas growing location, our Tuscan is a brilliant medium ruby hue with garnet notes and introduces itself with a nose of red and black cherry, tea leaf and hints of leather, vanilla, baking spice and earth. The mouth feel is clean with juicy red fruit, medium tannins and bright acidity followed by a clean finish. This is an especially good pairing wine with savory salumi, cheeses, grilled meats, and a variety of tomato sauce-based Italian dishes and pizzas.
