In 2012, Palmina took over the vineyard farming at a special property in Santa Ynez — Sogno del Fiore Vineyard. This is a beautiful property that many of our wine club members may have been to as it's home to a few Palmina events.

Steve knew the vineyard would be a perfect source for Palmina fruit, and after harvesting the grapes in 2013, he decided to make Palmina Sangiovese as a Fiore designated wine going forward.

The Fiore Sangiovese is made from the Brunello clone. Brunello, which translates to "the little dark one" produces large, dark fruit, yielding deep, dark and rich characteristics similiar to great old world Sangiovese. Its classic flavor profiles include blackberry, black cherry, chocolate and leather.

The fruit was picked in the early hours of the morning and brought to the winery before 6 am. It underwent native fermentation and an extended maceration period of 28 days before being pressed directly into barrel. The wine was aged for 22 months in neutral French oak barrels to allow the wine to integrate and evolve. The finished wine was then blended and remained in barrel before being bottled in July 2019.

TASTING NOTES

Tasting Notes
This year's Sangiovese is darker than some; notes of black cherries upon opening. Kalamata olives, fresh porcini mushrooms, capers and bright fruit linger on the palate, the wine finishes with a hint of anise and velvety tannins.
