PALMINA SANGIOVESE "UNDICI", SANTA BARBARA COUNTY 2012
NVWE Notes: This is a complex and impressively elegant Sangiovese that offers aromas of Maraschino cherry, strawberry, dried red rose, Panetone, vanilla cream wafers and dried herbs. On the palate, the texture is soft-edged and quietly zesty, while the flavors are a deliciously lingering melange of cranberry, cherry, lingonberry, raspberry cream sickle, pink rose, orange pith, pink peppercorn, nut husk, nougat, star anise, Panetone and sweet tobacco. Polished and wonderfully food-worthy already, it may be even better if cellared another year or two. Fruit sourced from Honea, Alisos & Fiore Vineyards. 328 cases produced.
Coming from the Honea and Fiore Vineyards and made from 100% Sangiovese, the 2012 Undici gives up lots of strawberry, mint, licorice and leather characteristics to go with a medium-bodied, beautifully balanced, classy feel on the palate. Fresh, focused and with bright acidity, this is a clean, superbly put together Sangiovese from California.
