Beautiful and soft as an Impressionist painting. Flavors of cherries, black raspberries, spices and herbs are wrapped in rich, easy tannins, coating the palate and finishing ripe but dry. Delicious on its own and immediately drinkable. A blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
“Siena” refers to the color of Sonoma soil, but this Sangiovese-based wine points to the winery’s Italian heritage. Typical varietal characteristics of dry earth and green herbs are well matched with juicy strawberry, cherry and blackberry flavors.
This may very well be this winery’s best red wine. A true and successful attempt at replicating a Super Tuscan. Tight, but soft-handed, the blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet and Malbec has been masterfully woven together. Not quite a home run, as intended, but a solid double.
One of the best reds for this price on the market, Ferrari-Carano’s ’07 Siena is 78% Sangiovese and 22% Malbec. The Sangiovese is all silky mouthfeel, red cherries and spices, while the Malbec brings color, body and tannins. A lovely, dry and unique wine.
This is the winery’s Sangiovese-based blend, with small amounts of Malbec and Zinfandel. It’s a rustic, lusty wine, with hard acids and sturdy tannins framing dry flavors of blackberry tea and raspberry jam. Drink now, with big, rich fare.
