Balanced and elegant, 93-point, single vineyard Sangiovese from DaVero Winery. The Highly Recommended Avivo Sangiovese is our latest Insider Deal.
As you've probably noticed from our previous Insider Deals, we love a good Sangiovese. Today we have exactly that coming from a vineyard located in the Mokelumne River AVA between Lodi and the Sierra Foothills.
Just 930 cases were produced and SommJournal gave the vintage we are offering here 93 points.
With an SRP of $20, this wine is already very reasonably priced. This is witnessed by the fact the few sellers out there on wine-searcher actually sell it for higher than the SRP. Of course, that's not the way we roll here at Reverse Wine Snob...
Today's Insider Deal gets you 4 bottles of the 93-point Avivo Sangiovese for just $64.99, or $16.25 a bottle.
With our super low $5 shipping, you're saving a total of 30%! Buy multiples and you save even more since you'll never pay more than $5 shipping, no matter how many 4-packs you buy. Keep on reading for our full review.

From the winery:
Crafted with high-quality fruit from the Biodynamically-farmed River’s Edge Vineyard, located near the shores of the Mokelumne River, between the bustling agricultural hub of Lodi and the base of the Sierra Foothills.
On the nose, the wine features lofty aromas of ripe red fruits and wild berries, interlaced with fragrant hints of fresh tobacco, wild herbs, citrus rind, and rustic spice.
In the glass, the deep flavors of ripe cherry, dark plum and black raspberry are layered with secondary notes of pomegranate, black olive, and spiced nuts. As the profile expands, these lush flavors are balanced with a velvety texture, smooth tannins, and a burst of vibrant acidity leading to a long, dry finish.
The end result is a well-made wine that is elegant, complex, and extremely user-friendly.
Food Pairings: Ripe cheeses, charcuterie, gourmet pizza, wild mushroom risotto, spicy sausage, roasted chicken with rosemary, grilled pork chops, and slow-cooked stews.
Produced and Bottled by Avivo Wines
The 2018 Avivo Sangiovese from DaVero Farms & Winery begins with a very pleasing aroma of red cherry and mixed berry aromas along with licorice, a little spice and some dried herbs.
Tasting reveals this to be a balanced, elegant, lighter-bodied example of Sangiovese where the fruit takes a bit of a back seat. Super smooth, round and lush in the mouth, the wine features touches of black olive, earth, tobacco and spice along with more mixed berry and plum fruit.
It ends dry and quite long. While it needs several hours to open up and be at its best, it's drinking wonderfully right now and should continue to do so over the next 3-5 years.
