Wanda's Weekend Wine: Ferrari-Carano Siena 2013 Sonoma County Red

Ferrari Carano Siena
Toast the weekend with a taste of Sonoma and a dash of la dolce vita - Ferrari-Carano Siena 2013 ($23) is a bold and racy California red inspired by the wines of Italy. A juicy, spicy, and velvety blend of mostly Sangiovese that gets revved up with Malbec, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Zinfandel; Siena dances on the palate with flavors of ripe berries, cherry, vanilla, licorice, and a hint of spice. This wine calls out for some thinly sliced Prosciutto di Parma, Pasta Bolognese, pizza, or a juicy steak.

If you're planning a trip to Sonoma, Ferrari-Carano offers tours and tastings at their opulent Healdsburg estate.
