2013 Martinelli Giuseppe & Luisa Zinfandel | Russian River Valley Sonoma California 750ml


One of the more overt, voluptuous Zinfandels in the range, the 2013 Giuseppe & Luisa blossoms in the glass with effortless grace. Dried dark cherries, plums, tobacco, leather and smoke. The flavors are dark, bold and racy, yet the 2013 retains its mid-weight personality and plenty of nuance. Layers of flavor build to the creamy, layered finish. | 93 points Antonio Galloni for Vinous

...another wine made from Jackass Hill clonal material. These are younger vines, but the wine displays plenty of black cherry liqueur, blackberry, charcoal, barbecue smoke, meat and almost Asian soy and spice. It is a full-bodied, full-throttle, pedal-to-the-metal style of Zinfandel to drink over the next decade. Luckily, this is the biggest cuvee of 2013 Zinfandel, checking in at 664 cases total. | 93 points Robert M Parker Jr for The Wine Advocate

At the ages of 19 & 16, Giuseppe Martinelli and Luisa Vellutini eloped to California from their small village in Tuscany. Starting out with a little bit of viticultural knowledge and a lot of hard work & determination, they eventually put a 60-degree slope in the Russian River Valley (aptly named Jackass Hill) under vine. Nearly a Century later, budwood from the Jackass Hill Vineyard became the start for another 10 acre parcel of Zinfandel planted in 1994 that supplies the fruit for the Giuseppe & Luisa bottling to this day. 664 cases produced |
