"The 2016 Zinfandel Old Vine has an open nose of red berry preserves, warm blackberries and stone fruit hints with layers of cinnamon stick, sweet spices, charcuterie, garrigue, turned earth and dried violet. The palate is medium to full-bodied, intense and spicy with a firm frame and mouthwatering acidity, finishing long and layered. This merits another couple of years in bottle. 1,429 cases produced."

"Seghesio, based in Monforte, makes excellent wines that capture the best of the soft textural elements that are the hallmark of the modern school in Piedmont." – Antonio Galloni
The steep slopes of Seghesio's winery in Monforte d'Alba were not always carpeted in vines. It wasn't until 1964 when Ettore Seghesio, a tenant farmer working the land, saved enough money to purchase the farm from its owners – and had the foresight to plant vineyards of Nebbiolo! For many years, the family's grapes were sold off in bulk to other producers in the region. In 1998, Ettore's sons, Aldo and Riccardo, took over the family estate and began bottling wine under the Seghesio label. Their outstanding terroir, together with a perfect blend of traditional and modern vinification methods, results in the production of lovely wines that have been greatly praised by the Italian and international press. Riccardo is now at the helm of the estate after Aldo's sudden passing in 2010. In addition, Aldo's two sons, Sandro and Marco, and his daughter, Michela, now work full-time at the estate. This is truly a family operation steeped in tradition.
