Louis M. Martini, Monte Rosso Vineyard, Gnarly Vine Zinfandel, California

€79.95
In stock
This Gnarly Vine Zinfandel is a big, full-bodied wine with rich blackberry and pepper aromas that lead to a sweep of dark fruit flavours, including blackberry reduction, plum and black currant. The intense fruit blends with layers of spice notes ranging from fresh peppercorns to clove and baking spices. The vibrant and robust wine is balanced by velvety tannins and the spice and minerality characteristic of Monte Rosso’s iron-rich volcanic soils. The extraordinarily long, luxurious finish includes hints of vanilla, pepper and molasses.

This Zinfandel is crafted entirely from old vines—some more than 120 years old—on the Monte Rosso Vineyard. Though yields are small, the old gnarly vines produce exceptional fruit with deep, concentrated flavours.

The Gnarly Vine Zinfandel grapes were hand-harvested by block and sorted by hand, then gravity fed into small, open top fermenters for a 3-day cold soak before primary fermentation. The grapes stayed on the skins for up to 16 days while the must was hand punched down 3 to 4 times a day for extraction. After the primary fermentation, the must was gravity fed into a gentle basket press, then fed into barrels for malolactic fermentation and aging. The wine was aged in barrels in individual blocks until it was assembled in July. It was aged several more months in barrels and 12 months in bottle to allow the flavors to integrate. In total, this wine was oak aged 14 months in a mix of 66% new French oak, 16% new American oak and 18% neutral barrels.
