A full-bodied, supple BC red wine made from the Sangiovese grape, which is also the grape used in Chianti. Lots of juicy acidity for a tangy meat or tomato sauce. Aromas of tart cherry and spice.

Reviews and Ratings

Deborah Podurgiel WSET IV Candidate - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

Absolutely spectacular. I brought this incredible Okanagan Valley, B.C. Sangiovese to the Atlas Steak and Fish house for a celebration dinner with a friend, and she brought a Sangiovese from William Hill Vineyard (Reserve) 2019 from Napa Valley, California, so that we could do a taste comparison. In all fairness, I asked for my bottle of Sangiovese to be opened and placed in a brown paper bag to be tasted blind so there would be no preconceived ideas about the wine. After all, who makes a Sangiovese in British Columbia? Well, Summerhill Pyramid Winery did and the 2014 knocked her wine socks off. Dark, rich and so fragrant with ripe cherry, earthy florals, meaty and muscular with dark cherry, dried mushroom, pepper spice, dry, medium-plus-bodied with medium-plus acidity and finishing long with fine slightly grippy and dusty tannins on the palate. And, although it could have easily cellared for another couple of years, alas, there is no more :( Tasted January 2023.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Sangiovese from Canada is worth taking a look at! This organic and biodynamic wine presents a bright and tart cherry, with a rustic, earthy note, some peppery spice on the nose and a hint of anise. Medium bodied, bright, mouthwatering acidity, and lots of tart and bright fruit on the palate with a spicy finish. Enjoy with pastas with tomato sauce or mushroom based dishes.
