Rising star winemaker Kirk Venge lends
an assist with this Sangiovese-based blend,
which helps explain why it’s so delicious.
What You Need To Know
You have to be a little bit crazy (or
at least nonconformist) to champion a variety like Sangiovese in
Napa Valley, where Cabernet is king. The signature grape of Italy’s
Chianti region, Sangiovese makes bright, cherry-driven reds with
lots of juicy acidity. It’s a favorite of winery owners Claus and
Diane Janzen, who add a dollop of it to their celebrated, Cabernet-based
signature red, Bacio Divino. With Pazzo (which means
“crazy” in Italian) bottlings, the Janzens and consulting
winemaker Kirk Venge turn the tables, adding a dash of
Cabernet—along with Syrah and Petite Sirah—to Sangiovese.
They crafted this vintage in a ripe, jammy style, with intense fruit
and a hint of spice.
Scents of vanilla
and ripe blackberry.
Loaded with jammy
plum flavors, with spice
and leather notes.
Cellar temperature—the bottle should be
cool to the touch.
