Ferrari-Carano Siena 2021
|Region||California, Sonoma County|
Siena pairs perfectly with savory Italian food, like pasta with flavorful tomato sauces or pizza. Siena is also delicious with dishes like chicken cacciatore, duck salad with raspberries or oranges, or simply prosciutto on crostini.
Good balance and generous, pure fruit flavors make this wine easy to enjoy and versatile with food. Made with 61% Sangiovese, plus Malbec, Petite Sirah and a few other grape varieties, its tangy raspberries and red cherries mediate richer plum and blueberry nuances for an appetizing and satisfying expression that's hard to resist.
The 2021 Red Blend Siena is a deep red, and offers up aromas of cedar, pine, black cherry, and tobacco. On the palate, it's full-bodied, with fine, drying tannins and juicy, fleshy red plum, mocha, and forest floor. Drink it over the next few years.
