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.

(15.5% alcohol, the highest of this year's pinot releases here): Vivid ruby-red. Raspberry liqueur, Asian spices, vanilla and smoky minerals on the intensely perfumed, expansive nose. Juicy and deeply concentrated, offering palate-coating flavors of red berry preserves, cola, spicecake and floral pastilles. Finishes with strong mineral thrust, plush tannins and lingering spiciness. Not for those who prefer their pinots in a subdued style, that's for sure.
