The questions are linked. Intrepid travelers often discover this delicious wine in Tuscany, home of Chianti Classico, Brunello di Montalcino, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, and others. So when these itinerant wine lovers treat themselves to a Napa Valley adventure, they seek out Sangiovese here too.
Had they searched for Cabernet Sauvignon, Google would have provided dozens, even hundreds of pages of Napa Valley wineries; not so for Sangiovese, a grape that demands the right clone in the right place, persistence, patience, and TLC. Our shy-bearing Rodeno clone, planted in Oakville, gets plenty of persistence, patience, and pampering.
