2002 Altamura Napa Valley Sangiovese
2002 Altamura Sangiovese --- SOLD OUT ---- Richly textured, balanced and bursting with flavor, Altamura Sangiovese set the bar for Napa Valley Sangiovese in 1993 and has never looked back.
Immediately evident in this wine is the dense rich ruby color. Multi-layered perfume of dried violets, dusty cocoa, vanillin, and the aroma reminiscent of freshly cultivated soil. Concentrated flavors of ripe dark fruit such as berry and plum are revealed and brightened by lively acidity and a hint of cinnamon all toned by long smooth tannins. The appealingly distinctive Wooden Valley ranch terroir connects Altamura’s wines creating focus and perspective.
The 2002 vintage produced 1200 cases in 750ml, 375ml and 1.5liter bottlings and was released on March 15, 2005. The wine is distributed in the United States, Internationally and directly through the winery.
