Seghesio – A Sonoma Winery & 2009 Chianti Station

Seghesio is a beautiful Sonoma winery with a rich history. They offer food and wine pairings so we decided to splurge and partake in a pairing with our close friends Brandon and Sarah Trenz. Here is the menu:

We loved all of the wines but we especially enjoyed the first one: 2009 Chianti Station, a Sangiovese. Sangiovese is Italy’s most planted grape variety, widely thought to be of ancient origin. It’s characteristics include late ripening in hot years which creates a rich, alcoholic long-lived wine. Or in cool years, a highly acidic and largely tannic wine.

After the pairing, Brandon and Sarah joined the wine club and we bought a couple of bottles, including the Chianti Station, which is 100% Sangiovese.

The Seghesio Chianti Station is a lovely Sangiovese. It’s a medium-bodied red wine (big body for a Sangiovese) with lots of cherry. I really enjoyed this wine and have fond memories of the great day we spent there eating their amazing food. I especially loved the short ribs. Afterward, we asked the chef to come to the room and we gave him a standing ovation. I love this winery. You can’t go wrong with a wine from Seghesio. When you’re in Sonoma, definitely make it a stop.

I really enjoyed the Chianti Station Sangiovese. There is something about the subtlety of the Sangiovese grape here that is really enjoyable. I am normally more drawn to bigger bodied wines but this one grabbed my attention. The tannin is pulled back and soft with just a hint of dryness on the finish. It also paired perfectly with the food that Seghesio presented for our tasting. I highly recommend trying the tasting menu. The tour, food and wines were all outstanding.
