    Ryme Sangiovese Friulano '20


    Ryme Sangiovese Friulano '20

    From the same adventurous duo who made the elegant Aglianico rosé we featured last month, this Sangiovese-based blend from Ryme seemed a sure follow-up as soon as we tried it.

    Ryan and Megan Glaab, the husband-and-wife team behind Ryme Cellars, have a knack for working with Italian varieties in the unlikely locale of Northern California. The fruit for this wine comes from the Fox Hill Vineyard, located near the Russian River in the region of Mendocino, which was planted to Italian varieties in the late 1980s by its original owners (Lowell and Barbara Stone) out of love for Italy and its wines.  

    Made of 85% Sangiovese cofermented with 15% Tocai Friulano, this is a lively blend that puts a modern twist on a style of Chianti from an earlier era of wine, in which white grapes were blended with Sangiovese to make some of the wines more, shall we say, palatable. While Ryme doesn’t face the same challenge when it comes to quality, it smartly used the idea to create an unpretentious wine that naturally expresses the bright cherry character of Sangiovese, along with a hint of rose and woody spices.

    Like many wines made with the process of carbonic maceration and a light hand in the winery, this one is best served with a slight chill and enjoyed with almost anything. It has the kind of juicy, mouthwatering finish that will leave a smile on your face.
