2015 ITALO'S VINEYARD ZINFANDEL

<< Back to Shop

This Alexander Valley Zinfandel vineyard was owned and planted by my Father Gino and Uncle Italo in the early 1930’s, just after the repeal of Prohibition. They started a little winery that unfortunately didn’t fare well during the Depression so my father sold out to my Uncle Italo, who continued to live on the property and was a farmer all his life. When my cousins asked me to crush the grapes from Italo’s Vineyard at the start this winery, I was thrilled with the prospect and decided it was fitting to name the wine after my Uncle Italo. This vintage is very well balanced for such a big wine, immediate notes of black pepper and red fruit, along with bay leaves, dried marjoram and beautiful floral aromas.
