San Giovanni is the name of our vineyard near the town of San Giovanni a Cerreto. In the church adjacent to our vineyard there is a painting by Rutilo MANETTI depicting Saint John the Baptist ("San Giovanni") offering to Mary. In this painting you will see a chalice with a serpent, the international symbol of Saint John and chosen for this label to honor this historic land that bears his name. Our Valdisanti wine from this vineyard is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, with 20% Sangiovese and 5% Cabernet Franc; an elegant, structured and full-bodied wine with rich dark berry fruit and cassis aromas, the lush fruit framed by balanced oak.

Grape varieties:: 75% Cab Sauvignon, 20% Sangiovese and 5% Cab Franc

Altitude: 320-380m ASL

Exposure: West/Southeast

Soil: Lime and clay, with a considerable presence of gravel

Alcohol: 13.5%

Tasting Notes:  Youthful, rich dark fruit, berry and cassis aromas meld with notable French oak spice. On the palate, Valdisanti is full-bodied with deep but reserved fruit flavors framed by rich oak. The excellent balance of fruit intensity with fine tannins indicates a cellar-worthy wine.
