Ferrari Carrano Siena'02, Sonoma Valley, CA, USA

A Dry yet smooth Sangiovese Blend, kind of "Super TuscanBlend" but from Sonoma Valley.

Technical Data: Crafted from 84% Sangiovese and small amounts of Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged 16 months in 100% old French oak barrels to help to accentuate the fruits of the Sangiovese.

Description:Dark ruby-red color. On the nose, Sienna has unique aromas of strawberry and raspberry. Its palate is echoing its nose, exploding with ripe red fruits flavors mainly from Sangiovese. We noticed additional flavors such as spice and woods. Medium-bodied wine, dry yet smooth with a velvety texture, matured tannins and a silky aftertaste.

Food Pairing & Service:This wine goes well with hearty chicken dishes, duck, lamb, and braised pork, could also be paired with turkey or light beef dishes. It also pairs well with root vegetables, such as carrots, onions, or celery.


Suggested Retail Price:$21.99 in MD
