Modest Wines By Jove Sangiovese 2020

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis sangiovese is sourced from Quinta Ferreira Vineyard on the Black Sage Bench, with a little merlot and cabernet franc additions. It is rare to taste a sangiovese outside Italy with a true varietal character (note the classic red cherry and spice). The style is light and refreshing, albeit with some desert scrub to shout Okanagan. I love the balance and the apparent potential for the future here. Well done.Tasted: 08 March 2022Tasted by: Prices: BC 29.99 winery online/direct Producer: Mt. Boucherie Estate WineryDistributors: The Bacchus Group Inc.
