2016 Seghesio 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. Today, we know how wise they were.
