2010 Amador Gold Sangiovese
Used these grapes in a 2008 Super Tuscan blend with 16% caberent. The wine was very delicate which seems to be the case with Amador Sangiovese but of late it has begun to pick up some grilled meat notes. Looking forward to trying this again.
- Crush – 80% Whole Berries / 20% Whole Cluster (if stems have lignified)
- Color Pro 2 - 4 mL
- Opti-Red or Booster Rouge 6 - 8 g
- Tannins 6 g
[*]Yeast: BM45[*]Extended Maceration (for additional tannin and woody extract from stems. Seeds must be brown. Attempt at a more tuscan style sangiovese)[*]Oak: 35 Cubes Hungarian Medium Toast
Depending on the fruit and how fermentation progresses I will try to get a bit more extraction out of this wine this time around in an attempt to secure a more Tuscan style sangiovese.
