Vineyard Notes:

When searching for this important southern Italian variety, we found that there were very few acres planted in California. Luckily, a meticulous farmer in Tracy Hills, Jeff Brown was brought to our attention. The area is classed as a “mineral resource zone” designated by the US Geological Service due to the high gravel content of the soil. This well-drain vineyard is “deficit irrigated” which produces intensely flavored grapes.

Production Notes:

Grapes are de-stemmed with minimal crushing. Must is pumped to a temperature controlled stainless steel tank and inoculated with a pure strain of wine yeast to ensure complete and healthy fermentation. Grapes are pressed and the juice is moved to a settling tank. Within a few days, 30% of the wine is racked and moved onto new American oak and the balance on neutral cooperage for nine months. The wine is racked once more during the course of aging and then moved to a tank for bottling.

Winemaker Notes:

The wine has notes of strawberry, black pepper and mushrooms with a hint of Worchestershire sauce.

Food Pairing:

Enjoy with spaghetti and meatballs, barbecued pork ribs or grilled steak.
