Bring this in your brown bag. This Sangiovese (the grape of Italy’s Chianti wines) was grown right here in BC – and is the only Sangiovese planting in the Okanagan (in Canada?) to date. Here it is blended with 12.5% Barbera to up the body and deepen the colour. Spicy black cherry and violet aromas lead to a earthy palate of pepper, herbs, anise, cedar and ripe cherries. The tannins are dark cocoa dry, the body is bantamweight and the finish is lengthy and elegant. Pair with Parmigiano Reggiano, crusty bread and tomato sauced polenta.Sandhill Winemaster Howard Soon is a legend in BC – and this year’s honour of Winery of the Year at the Canadian Wine Awards is a well deserved nod to a man and wine program that never compromises. His Small Lots program wines are cult favourites – all handcrafted on a small scale (only 644 of this Sangiovese vintage was produced) and snapped up quickly.Rating: (click here to see what our wine ratings mean) OkanaganRed WineWine Reviews SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Written By: Treve Ring Treve Ring is a wine writer, editor, judge, consultant and certified sommelier, and has been with EAT Magazine for over a decade.\r\n\r\nIn addition to her work with EAT, she is a Wine Critic and National Judge for ...
