Mosby 2006 Sangiovese Santa Ynez Valley

Mosby Winery’s 2006 Sangiovese was handcrafted from Santa Barbara County’s Vigna Della Casa Vechia Vineyard (vineyard of the old house), which surrounds the historic adobe home near the winery. Produced in the style of the finest Italian Chiantis, the 2006 Sangiovese is rich, flavorful and lightly oaked with incredible aromas of cocoa, dried cherries, lavender and lilac. These aromas progress into layered flavors of crushed dark berries, spice and oak, complemented by a full body with nice acidity and smooth tannins. Mosby’s 2006 Sangiovese was awarded a Best of Class and Gold Medal distinction at the Pacific Rim International Wine Competition and a Gold Medal at the Orange County Commercial Wine Competition. This versatile and elegant wine pairs very well with pastas in tomato sauces, veal dishes, and grilled chicken or beef. Aged in old French oak barrels. [+]
