Notes from the Winemaker:
Among Tuscany's oldest and most prestigious wine families, Ambrogio and Giovanni Folonari teamed with Allen Shoup to produce a wine that showcases Washington state's terroir with plenty of Italian character. Saggi (meaning "wisdom") is a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah.

Tasting Notes:
Deep crimson in color, with bright aromas of ripe strawberries woven around a hint of sweet spice, this is a lively wine with a refined texture and vibrancy that elevates the ripe red currant and fresh plum flavors on the mid-palate. Beautifully balanced and rich from entry through an extended finish.

Ratings & Reviews

89 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"I found the 2013 Saggi to be good, but surprisingly firm and lean, with aggressive tannin. Made from 59% Sangiovese, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Syrah, aged 18 months in 55% new French oak, it offers pretty Sangiovese notes of cedary spice and dark fruits, integrated acidity and a good finish. Give bottles 2-3 years in the cellar to let the tannin integrate, at which point it will be easier to see where the fruit/tannin balance is headed." - Jeb Dunnuck (Jun 2016)
