Since we began experimenting with deficit irrigation the canopy and crop management of our old Block 601 Sangiovese became much easier and more effective. The vines have become more balanced and that affects the flavor profile of our Sangiovese in a very positive way. In addition to the consistent Asian spices, dried cranberries and bright cherries now we see deeper and more complex aromas and flavor of dark fruit and cocoa. The oak aging added additional aromas of vanilla, maple, toast and a hint of cinnamon to the already spicy and complex wine. The mouth feel is also typical for Sangiovese-bright acidity, soft tannins, medium body and a medium long but juicy finish. Sangiovese is one of the most food friendly grape varietals and has a special affinity to dishes based on tomatoes and tomato sauces. Cheers. Miro
