2012 Sangiovese

  • Gold Medal: San Francisco International Wine Competition
  • Highly Recommended: Dan Berger, Vintage Experiences 7/2014
  • 90 Points: Rich Cook, Wine Review Online. "One of the few consistent successes in California is made at Pedroncelli. Theirs is a ripe styled offering, showing mixed mature berries with notes of plum and spice and touches of chocolate and leaf. It's nice and dry, with food friendly acidity and a long finish."
  • 93 Points: justwinepoints.com
  • Recommended: Wine Enthusiast "This affordable Cal-Italian wine from a good vintage year dances in tart red cherry and cranberry atop dense tannins and leanings of chocolate and coffee. A rare find in the appellation, it’s worth a try." Virginie Boone Read More »
