About The Wine
2012 Pure Cru Sangio Vetta (Sangiovese) Napa Valley
***THIS WINE JUST WON BEST OF CLASS AT THE SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE WINE COMPETITION****
I have made Sangiovese based wines since 1992, from this vineyard since 1999. This is the 5th for pureCru Napa Valley Winery.
Each vintage of this wine has been a multiple Gold Medal winner. It is a small production lot that we have proprietized with the identity of Sangio Vetta, meaning Sangiovese at the peak or pinnacle. Now and in the future, it will be blended in a way that best reflects the style I believe shows it as a world class Red of unique dimension without worrying about the percentages of varietals used meeting any minimum for labeling regulations.
Meet Mitch Cosentino
Cosentino began making wine in small lots in Modesto, California in 1980. Ten years later he moved the Cosentino Winery operation to the Napa Valley, where he continued to make many award-winning varietal and blended wines.
Cosentino has a gift for identifying fruit sources and is highly skilled and artistic in determining blends. He’s a big believer in the hands-on, old world use of punched cap fermentation, a labor-intensive, hand-crafted method of winemaking. When it comes to the small lots Cosentino puts into his pureCru blends, this "micro" approach to winemaking allows him to better control the delicate process from the vineyard to the bottle.
