VERDICT: "Go for it"
Central Coast
Private Reserve Sangiovese, 14.25% alc.www.guglielmowinery.com Review by Clinton Stark

Located in Morgan Hill, just south of Silicon Valley, Guglielmo Winery produces about 40,000 cases per year. They sent a Petite Sirah and this Sangiovese to Stark Insider, and between the two I preferred the Sangio by a wide margin. It’s dark, rich and luscious — just like J. Lo come to think of it. At $16 it’s a good value too. Just don’t expect a world of complexity or nuance… the fuit here is ready to play. I like the pepper, always welcome in my books. 87 pts, $16. 845 cases. Recommended, value pick.

Clinton shoots videos for Stark Insider. San Francisco Bay Area arts, Ingmar Bergman and French New Wave, and chasing the perfect home espresso shot 25 seconds at a time (and failing). Peloton: ClintTheMint. Camera: Video Gear
