The grapes for the Thornton Winery’s Sangiovese were grown within three miles from the Thornton Winery. Night-harvesting helps to preserve the vibrant fruit character. Our winemaker, David Vergari, did not want to over-oak the wine with too many new barrels; he thought it best to preserve the fruit character and expression from the vineyard. Rest assured this is a wine that will show well with additional bottle age yet is ready to drink now.
