Winemaker Notes

Vintage: The 2005 growing season was an exceptional vintage that produced beautifully balanced, aromatic wines with intense, focused flavors. Spring conditions were mild, but by mid-June temperatures began to rise and the summer stayed hot. As if on command, the heat backed off just enough in September to allow the grapes to spend extra time on the vine and reach their full maturity. It was the perfect ending to an ideal vintage that will certainly be remembered as one of the decade's finest.

Tasting Notes: This Super Tuscan style wine offers delicate fig and baking spice aromas. Bright red fruit and dark cherries enhance the wine's balanced structure. The finish is long and concentrated with a hint of ripe pomegranate.

The Folonaris are among Italy's oldest and most prestigious Tuscan wine families with a winemaking history dating back to the late 1700's. Father and son, Ambrogio & Giovanni Folonari, brought their knowledge and expertise to the Columbia Valley to help winemaker Gilles Nicault craft this unique blend.

The name Saggi, (meaning “Wisdom”), is a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. 

Saggi is one of six distinct red wines from Long Shadows Vintners - a collection of ultra-premium wines, each built on the unique expertise of some of the world’s most knowledgeable winemakers to showcase the quality and caliber of Washington State’s Columbia Valley.

Since the beginning, Long Shadows' Director of Winemaking and Viticulture Gilles Nicault, has overseen the operations of the winery and worked closely with the vintners to bring each winemaker’s vision to completion. Internationally renowned winemakers Randy Dunn (Feather Cabernet Sauvignon); John Duval (Sequel Syrah); Philippe Melka (Pirouette Red Wine); and Michel Rolland (Pedestal Merlot) are active partners in their respective wines. Gilles now crafts Poet’s Leap Riesling and Saggi, a Sangiovese/Cabernet Sauvignon blend, in styles that remain true to their original winemakers, Armin Diel and Giovanni Folonari respectively. Gilles crafts Chester-Kidder, a Cabernet Sauvignon/Syrah blend, independently.

Gilles works closely with the state’s top growers to execute a diverse winemaking protocol at Long Shadows’ state-of-the-art facility in Walla Walla to produce wines of exceptional quality, true to the Columbia Valley’s terroir.
