Tasting Notes

The 2019 season had an interesting mix of conditions to say the least! We had a lot of rain in March and in May, fire in October with evacuations and power outages, other than that the quality was spectacular! The only grapes not harvested before the fire started was our small block of Montepulciano, but we managed to harvest before the fire became more serious. Otherwise, the growing season was relatively mild and long without any heat waves or other surprises. The crop yields were lower than 2018 and the quality was high. Montepulciano, an important grape variety from Central Italy, was planted on our Estate fifteen years ago but it was only 4 rows of vines. We liked it so much that 9 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 2019 is our third 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. Cheers!
