Jacuzzi Sangiovese

Varietal: Sangiovese
Region: California – Sonoma Valley – USA
Cost: $22

Bright raspberry, cherry, and pepper flavors with a deep red color.  Light and smooth on the palate, pairs well with grilled chicken, red meat, seasoned pork.

Recommendations: Sangiovese will always hold a special place in my heart as Chianti was the first red wine that I ever truly got in to.  Because of that, when my wife and I were in California back in October, I immediately was drawn to the Sangiovese at Jacuzzi Family Vineyards.

Light on the palate and smooth throughout with just a hint of tannin on the finish, it was a great pairing with a dinner of chicken caesar salad.  My only real complaint with this wine was that it wasn’t a bigger bottle.  While I’ve yet to find this wine back home on the east coast, if you’re a fan of Sangiovese or Chianti and do come across this wine, or you’re at Jacuzzi Family Vineyards in Sonoma, I do recommend picking up a bottle of this wine.  It’s well worth it.
