“Super Tuscan” style blend of 75% Sangiovese and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. This is powerful like a lady gymnast rather than a male weightlifter. Black currant, dark raspberry, cedar, orange tea and tobacco smells and flavors all tightly packed into this intense, youthful wine whose best days are well ahead of it (2025-2030). 13.6% alcohol, medium/high tannins, low oak influence by Napa standards.

The 2014 Villa Ragazzi Sangiovese has considerable charm and freshness, with an intriguing earthiness that hints at its Italian heritage. This vintage shows Sangiovese's typical spicy, red fruit characters and clean, bright finish due to the varietal’s natural bracing acidity, with a hint of French oak and the true red color typical of our unique Rodeno clone.
Grown and produced in very small amounts since 1989, Villa Ragazzi Sangiovese has unusually full body and intense color. This is due to low yields, small berries, and the vineyard site's suitability for growing high quality Sangiovese, rare in Napa Valley. This is a wine with serious aging potential and offers great pleasure now. It will reward you with expansive aromas if you decant it, or give it a few minutes to open up in your glass.
