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.
92 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2009
($50) Light gold. Pungent aromas of iodine, anise, Meyer lemon, smoky lees and dried flowers. Broad, palate-coating citrus and orchard fruit flavors are complicated by smoked meat, hazelnut and tarragon qualities. Becomes spicier on the finish, with the lees and iodine notes echoing. Impressively complex and powerful enough to handle shellfish, poultry or cheeses.
