2014 Muscardini Unti Sangiovese

MUSCARDINI
2014 Sangiovese, Unti Vineyards
Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County

VINEYARD
Unti Vineyard lies in the heart of the Dry Creek Valley. The grapes are lovingly grown and hand tended by the Unti family.  Long hot days and cool nights bring out the best in these grapes. Organic, biodynamically farmed and grown.

TASTING NOTES
Opens with floral and sun kissed fruit tones showing signs of long development. Decadent black fruit aromatics lead to crisp and wild red fruits, and finishes with savory tones of toasted anise and tomato leaf, spice of fresh espresso, white peppercorn and sweet nutmeg.  It’s drinking very well now and will last over 10 years. You'll surely be rewarded if you lay a few down. Overall, a classic style of Sangiovese to pair with wide-range of fine Mediterranean Cuisine, including grilled vegetables, charcuterie, grilled fish, pasta, barbecued chicken, pork chops and rare to medium-rare meats.

History of Muscardini Cellars
1892, when Michael Muscardini's grandfather, Emilio Alchera, was born in the village of Calliano, just outside of the city of Asti in the Piemonte region. Emilio came to America in 1909 via Ellis Island in New York.  After heading to the West Coast by train to meet his two brothers, Antonio and Louis, he settled in San Francisco.  Emilio began his living in California by helping to dig the Caldecott Tunnel, which connects the East Bay to Contra Costa County. After saving his money, he began to buy and run corner grocery stores where he sold fine bulk wines, and in his spare time made a red table wine for the family.  His business would eventually become the "St. Helena Napa Valley Wine Company."
