We’re proud to release the third vintage of Klenk Sangiovese. For the second year in a row it is a Super Tuscan style Sangiovese. The slight addition of Granite Hill Cabernet Sauvignon helps to round out the chalky tannins typical of the Klenk Vineyards and lay down a defining layer of middle hickory terroir.

A deep burgundy hue shows a rich raspberry tint, leading to muddled black cherries and spicy cedar on the nose.  Flavors of baked cherry pie finished with lemon zest and generous baking spice fill a silky-textured palate lined with cinnamon, nutmeg, leather and tobacco, softened by vanilla at the edges. Finely-textured tannins linger at the finish with light points of chile spice. Enjoy through 2022.
