    Sposa e Sposa translates from Italian as Spouse and Spouse and refers to the marriage of varietals, Dolcetto and Lagrein. A unique blend not made in Italy or anywhere else, just here in Langhorne Creek by Ben. “A marriage made in Langhorne Creek.”

    Tasting Notes

    The fascinating Lagrein shows great complexity now that the vines have some age. Look for blackberries and black spice! The Dolcetto softens the palate and offers a burst of fruit to please and entice. This is designed for immediate pleasure, but has enough structure for a few years of cellaring.

    Vinification

    The Dolcetto was cool fermented on skins for seven days before being crushed and matured in stainless steel in order to preserve the fresh, floral notes of the variety. The Lagrein was matured new French oak barrels after fermentation to create a rounder, softer texture.

    Vintage

    2014 followed the classic road of a late vintage accompanying a late Easter. Deep soil moisture from a traditional winter flood bolstered us against the warm summer days, as did the cooling Langhorne Creek winds. The longer ripening period gave us intense and complex Lagrein fruit that gives Sposa e Sposa true depth.
