Martinelli 'Moonshine' Pinot Noir 2017
Vinous Media 95
"The 2017 Pinot Noir Moonshine Ranch is marked by an array of bright floral notes and orange peel/citrus overtones that add freshness to a core of sweet red berry fruit. Medium in body, racy and exceptionally beautiful, the 2017 has so much to offer. The mix of three clones here - 113, 114 and 115 - seems to yield a Pinot of remarkable complexity. -- Antonio Galloni"

"The 2017 Pinot Noir Moonshine Ranch is pale to medium ruby in color with a broody nose of wild blackberries, black cherries, crushed red cherry, moss-covered bark and black tea leaves. It offers intense, dark spicy fruit in the mouth with grainy-textured tannins, good freshness and a long finish. 348 cases produced."

The Estate
The Martinelli family has been growing grapes in the Russian River Valley since 1887. At the ages of 19 and 16, Giuseppe Martinelli and Luisa Vellutini left their small village in the Tuscany region of Italy and made their way to California looking for land to farm and start a winery. Giuseppe had been a winemaker in Italy and with his viticultural knowledge he was hired to plant a vineyard for a farmer in Forestville. 100 years later, the historic Martinelli Estate vineyards are farmed by Lee Martinelli, Sr., and sons Lee, Jr. and George Martinelli. The wines are made by winemaker Bryan Kvamme. These handcrafted wines are unfined, unfiltered, neither cold nor heat stabilized and may contain naturally occurring sediment.
