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.

Bright gold. A wild, pungent bouquet evokes wet stone, iodine, pear skin and citrus pith, along with a smoky overtone. Rich and fleshy but dry, offering oak-spiced lime, anise and pear skin flavors underscored by dusty minerals and a gingery nuance. This really stains the palate. Closes silky and extremely long, with resonating mineral and spice notes and excellent clarity. Shows the vivacity of the vintage to full effect but there's serious power and depth of flavor here as well.
