This delicious Sangiovese is a superb example of what can be done with the Italian variety in Washington. It opens with hints of saddle leather, oak and cherry, followed by up-front flavors of ripe cherry, plum and rich spice. Bright, classic acidity makes this a perfect wine with lasagna or lean cuts of beef.
