10 cases produced

Highlights

  • 100% Sangiovese
  • Sourced from the rocky soils of the Game Farm Vineyard in Oakville

Your Premiere Napa Valley Sangiovese Riserva is the best of both worlds, old and new. Grapes are sourced from the rocky soils of the Game Farm Vineyard in Oakville, an area known for producing densely concentrated wine in an iconic Napa Valley style. Fermentation methods create classic Sangiovese notes of violets and blackberries; barrel selection imparts a unique spice component and lingering vanilla finish. This wine highlights our commitment to blending Italian wine grape varieties with Napa Valley growing conditions.
