Select Red Table Wine
This blend from Vittorio Vineyard Zinfandel 67%, Cariganne 17%, Primitivo 8%, and Petite SIrah 8% is like a foray to the piazza at Carnevale. Even with hints of frost still lingering, it's hardy ripe fruit for tells the warmth of the growing season soon to follow and the promise of another harvest. The head pruned, dry farmed Vittorio vineyard provides aromas of tar, dark brambly fruit, and hints of leather. On the palate it is rich and concentrated with wild black berries, and notes of sour cherries and sage. The wine is dense and mouth filling yet balanced with crisp acidity allowing it to pair with rich foods. Try it with your favorite lasagna recipe or roasted pork with dried mushrooms, rosemary, and olive oil. Aged for 18 months in oak barrels (20% new).
