Favero Estate Sangiovese, Sonoma Valley
was so popular it has disappeared from
our racks. However, the good news is
Favero 2009 Sangiovese has arrived and
is everything a Favero wine promises!
The process to make this 2009 Estate
Sangiovese started at harvest with the
selection of very ripe fruit. These
flavors are still very pronounced in
the bottle. In addition, aromas of rose
petals, coffee, cedar and dark chocolate
are combined with this big, luscious
fruit, spice, and balanced French oak.
Food pairings range from Charcuterie
and mature cheese plates, gourmet pizzas,
beef, seasoned pork, and zest sauces.
This is not a light wine by any means;
3-5 years of aging is recommended.
Only 100 cases made so this unique wine is a tasty steal at only $32
Solitude Chardonnay Carneros appellation.
Rediscover this popular and much-sought-after classic wine with a reputation developed over the past 22 years. As always, the grapes are grown “just down the road” from Sonoma Enoteca Tasting Room on south Broadway,Town of Sonoma, on the famed Sangiacomo Family Vineyards. These top-quality vineyards are the single source of Chardonnay grapes for the past two decades of making this highly regarded wine.
This vintage exemplifies the style of wine we try to achieve at SOLITUDE. Layers of oak complement the tropical fruit flavors of the Carneros appellation. Our wine is dry, full and very rich but retains refreshing acidity to keep the wine well balanced. Traditional Burgundian techniques of yeast selection, barrel fermentation in French oak barrels, lees stirring and 100% malo-lactic fermentation increases complexity and richness.
We’re extremely pleased with this vintage because it exhibits the classic character of the Carneros.There are rich tropical fruit aromas, with smooth mouth-filling flavors and a crisp finish. The wine drinks beautifully in its youth and will gain aromatic and flavor complexity with additional age..
Just $29 per bottle.
