SIENA has delicious aromas of pomegranate, cherry, plum, licorice, and mocha. Flavors of strawberry jam on the entry are enhanced by cherry cola and smoky plums that add layers of richness to this elegant wine. Supple tannins leave a balanced mouthfeel, with lively elegance, depth and a lingering finish.
SIENA pairs perfectly with savory Italian food, pasta with flavorful tomato sauces or pizza. SIENA is also delicious with dishes such as Chicken Cacciatore, a duck salad with fruit, like raspberries and oranges, or simply prosciutto on crostini bread.
How It's Made
SIENA is a red wine blend consisting primarily of Sangiovese. Grapes are harvested and destemmed, then hand sorted and fed directly into tanks for three days of cold soaking. Following the cold soak, yeast is added and pump overs commence, one to two times daily, for the duration of primary fermentation. Once fermentation is finished, the wine is drained and pressed to 21% new barrels for malolactic fermentation and 14 months of cave aging.
