Sangiovese has always been one of the building blocks of the Covington Cellars winery. This noble grape takes the stage at Covington Cellars in many forms, but the Ode is the centerpiece. We began making Ode with the 2006 vintage as our “Ode” to Brunello di Montalcino. Ode is always 100% Sangiovese that is aged for a full 36 months in barrel after fermentation and then aged an additional 2 years in bottle before release. The 2015 is 50% Boushey Vineyard Sangiovese (Yakima Valley) and 50% Seven Hills Sangiovese (Walla Walla Valley).
