VARIETAL: 100% Sangiovese
LOCATION: Yorkville Highlands - Mendocino
TOTAL PRODUCTION: 600 cases
100% destemmed into stainless fermentation tanks. After 2 weeks, we pressed into neutral French oak barrels. The Sangiovese comes in each year as one of the most expressive grapes throughout harvest - showing beautiful aromas of cinnamon and clove. Amore Rosso is a play on words with our Love Red - the Italian sister. We wanted to make a delicious, accessible, high acid, natural and food friendly (pizza) wine!
Brett, who also farms our Old Vine Carignan vineyard in Alexander Valley, farms the vineyard here in Yorkville Highlands. The vines are 22 years old and grow on a steep slope in rocky, iron-rich soil composed of sandy loam. There is no use of chemicals, pesticides or herbicides in the vineyard.
At Broc Cellars, all of our wines are made using spontaneous fermentation, a process that means we only use native yeasts and bacteria that exist on the grapes in order to make wine. We don’t add anything – this includes nutrients, yeast, bacteria, enzymes, tannins or other popular fermentation agents. Sulphur is a naturally occurring element in all wine, the amount found can vary. We add little to no S02, depending on the wine and style.
There must be a person 21 or older present at the time of delivery.
