Ferrari-Carano Siena 2018
|Region||California, Sonoma County|
Siena has delicious aromas of toasted graham cracker, plum, raspberry and mocha that lead to flavors of baked cherry pie, vanilla bean, cola and spice with sweet oak notes and hints of butterscotch lingering on the finish. SIENA has supple tannins and a balanced mouthfeel with lively elegance and depth. Siena pairs perfectly with savory Italian food, like pasta with flavorful tomato sauces or pizza. SIENA is also delicious with dishes like chicken cacciatore, duck salad with raspberries or oranges, or simply prosciutto on crostini.
A bright, fresh mix of chocolate-covered cherry, dried raspberry and plum notes show clove, toffee and espresso accents, with thick, appealing tannins pulling everything into focus.
