Sangiovese, "Undici" 2012

Palmina

A complex bouquet of vaquero leather, fresh picked blonde tobacco, rose petals and marzipan layered over dark black cherry fruit. Ripe blueberry and cranberry show on the mouth with hints of orange peel and river pebbles. The wine is juicy with a drying finish like biting into a sweet pomegranate seed. And why the name? Steve Clifton chose to name the wine “Undici” which translates to “eleven” in Italian. Why? First, because it's a high quality, elegant wine with great aging potential. Second, because Steve is both a musician and winemaker with a sense of humor. If you've seen the movie Spinal Tap then you already know what we mean when we say: This wine goes to eleven.
