About Martinelli Winery
Martinelli Winery is truly a creation born out of love. Founders Giuseppe and Luisa Martinelli eloped from their native Tuscany in 1895, with little more than their knowledge of winemaking, and set out to make a life in the new world. Over a century later, we can safely say that they succeeded.
92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2002
Slightly hazy. Complex nose melds lemon custard, hazelnut, hay, clove and minerals. Fat and opulent in the mouth, with flavors of lemon and pineapple and a thoroughly silky texture. From ten-year-old vines in a site adjacent to the Martinelli Family's Jackass Hill vineyard. Seems to combine the best traits of this winery's other 2000 chardonnays.
