"From estate-grown fruit, this is a hearty, robust expression of the variety that explodes on the palate in restless waves of ripe red cherry, black and white pepper and exotic black licorice. Powerfully concentrated, it shows a hint of lavender on the nose that invites one back again and again. Virginie Boone"

The Wine
Our 2017 “Vigneto di Evo” Zinfandel has a nose of rich red raspberry, cinnamon, and sweet clove. On the palate, juicy red plum and black cherry give way to exotic spice and a long finish. All of our Zinfandel vineyards originate from our heritage Zinfandel vineyards that belonged to Giuseppe & Luisa Martinelli in the 1880s. Our oldest Zinfandel vines are over 140 years old. These vineyards, inherited from our ancestors, are still producing grapes today. We have taken cuttings from these old, old Zinfandel vines to create several of our newer Zinfandel vineyards, because we know the tremendous flavor and mouth feel our heritage vines produce. Its like no other.

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.
