Seghesio Family Vineyards

2013 Chianti Station
2013 Chianti Station

America’s oldest Sangiovese vineyard derives its name from a tiny railway station in Northern Sonoma’s Alexander Valley. This valley so much resembled their native land that the first Italian immigrants named the stops along the track for the wines they sensed would flourish here. Trusting their intuition, in 1910, the Seghesio Family planted a Sangiovese-based field blend in their Chianti Station vineyard, according to the classic Tuscan tradition. Each vintage these 100+ year-old vines yield a tiny production of just 2-3 barrels.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A field blend of century-old Sangiovese vines provides traditional Chianti flavors in Alexander Valley. Spiced red fruit and currant with tones of dusty earth, licorice, cloves and orange zest. Sangiovese’s natural acidity and polished tannins contribute textural balance.

ALEXANDER VALLEY

Chianti Station, Alexander Valley. This acre and a half, planted in 1910, is the rich source of four unique Sangiovese clones that have subsequently been used as mother clones in our other Sangiovese vineyards. Fortunately, the original vineyard has been preserved exclusively for use in this tiny production wine.
