Sangiovese is Tuscany’s signature grape, but this bottling is evidence that it thrives in California’s Mendocino region, too.
What You Need To Know
Mendocino is the insider’s California wine country. This hilly coastal county is located directly north of Napa and Sonoma and boasts both ancient vines and hundreds of cutting-edge wineries, yet it remains strangely under-theradar. It’s perfect for Monte Volpe’s Greg Graziano, who relishes Mendocino’s cooler climate and low-key scene. A down-to-earth vintner whose grandparents immigrated to the region from Italy’s Puglia, Graziano has long been one of California’s most fervent— and successful—partisans of Sangiovese. This small-lot bottling tempers that Italian variety’s food-friendly acidity with plummy fruit flavors.
