Always one of the most anticipated wines in the Hook & Ladder portfolio the "Brunello Style" Sangiovese does not disappoint. A decidedly old world approach in winemaking through a patient aging process will culminate in a bottling after 40 months. This 100% Sangiovese from vineyards in the Chalk Hill area has a ruby red color that hints towards its extended time in barrel. Aromas of leather, dried blueberries and blue flower are subtle and nuanced. This medium bodied and silky smooth wine holds a signature bright acidity encapsulating layers of condensed strawberry, black cherry and star anise. The wine finishes with a soft and sweet linger of tannin.
