I was duped!

Well, I have to make an addendum to my post below. I said it was true authentic Wisconsin Sangiovese - and can you believe it??? I was wrong!! 

My friend Phil of Thief Wine in Milwaukee commented:

"No WI terroir in that wine - the Sangiovese is grown in Washington. (Hence the "American" designation) Very little Vitis Vinifera in Wisconsin; Riesling's about the only one cold-hardy enough to overwinter in the Midwest."

I thought the comment should be read by all so I wanted to post it - thanks for the correction Phil!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
