2018 Trentadue Old Orchard Montepulciano

Sold Out

Tasting Notes

Montepulciano, an important grape variety from Central Italy, was planted on our Estate fourteen years ago but it was only 4 rows of vines. We liked it so much that 8 years ago we planted additional 1.5 acres of the certified Italian clone VCR 10. We found out that this variety is late ripening, even later then the Cabernet Sauvignon. There are currently less than 10 tons harvested of this variety in Sonoma County. It is the grower’s variety-with its beautiful and perfect, dark berried clusters, uniformly hanging from the vines. The 2018 is our second year of updated line of more upscale and unique blends under the Trentadue label. This is a truly winemakers blend of all handpicked barrels all made from the young vines. Honoring the Trentadue family heritage and traditions we offer you this classic Italian variety. The wine is deeply colored, with intense blueberry and plum aromas, solid tannins and firm acidity.
