“This is my favorite Sangiovese ever produced from Showket Vineyards” …..Dorothy Showket.
The day has finally arrived when we can present to you a wine created from start to finish by our new winemaking team of Russell Bevan and Thomas Brocker: the 2007 Showket Vineyards Sangiovese.
We, at Showket Vineyards, have often referred to our Sangiovese as our Rock-n-Roll wine. The attention to detail starts in the vineyard with the care and feeding of the Sangiovese vines and carries over to the winery where the grapes and the wine are treated with the upmost care by our winemakers. The result is this incredible Sangiovese which we think you are going to love. As Russell would say, “Our 2007 Sangiovese rocks!”
Winemakers` Notes…Russell Bevan and Thomas Brocker
The 2007 Showket Vineyard Sangiovese is a special wine for all of us at Showket Vineyards. It is the first vintage that was taken from the vine to the bottle with our new winemaking team and 2007 was the perfect vintage with which to start. From the second you first pour the wine, it demands your attention with a dark ruby color and aromatics which bound from the glass. This is a big concentrated wine. It has a compelling nose of black cherry, plum, and vibrant spices. It has a lively texture that makes it a perfect accompaniment to traditional Italian cuisine. With decanting, the wine exhibits secondary scents of tobacco and roasted herbs. We consider this to be our finest Sangiovese yet.
