About Martinelli Vineyards
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.

($75) Deep red color. Fresh raspberry, blueberry, rose and smoky minerals on the nose. Primary red and dark berry flavors are brightened by zesty, peppery spices and firmed by gentle tannins. Seemed to gain energy with aeration, picking up candied rose and mace qualities. Finishes with a hint of black pepper and outstanding persistence. This is strikingly energetic for such a concentrated wine.
