Aromas of black currant, cracked pepper, pastry crust, nutmeg and fennel fill the bouquet. On the palate, vibrant acidity and a light dusting of tannins frame notes of cherry compote, lingering through to the wine’s long and velvety finish.
Food Pairing Notes
This wine pairs well with tomato-based dishes. Try adding in sausage or pancetta to a marinara sauce, or enjoy with pizza topped with fresh mozzarella and spicy coppa.
Pagani Ranch lies along Highway 12 near the town of Kenwood in the Sonoma Valley AVA, and was once part of the Wildwood Dairy Farm. When Felice Pagani purchased it in the late 1880s, only a few vines had been established. Today, the 30-acre site is comprised primarily of 100-year-old vines rooted in gravelly clay loam and planted on rolling, east-facing slopes.
