Vinous Reverie Notes
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. Tasting Notes: Exceptionally balanced with notes of black fig, currant, and tobacco leaf. The wine is fresh and silky on the palate with notes of brambly fruit accented by warm nutmeg and crème brûlée. Dusty tannins extend the wine’s long finish, along with the balanced acidity. Food Pairing: This wine is a perfect pairing 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.
