Martinelli Giuseppe and Luisa Zinfandel 2020
The Giuseppe & Luisa Zinfandel is produced from vines that were grafted from the budwood of the centurion vines on Jackass Hill and planted on a rocky knoll above the Martinelli Winery. The brightly colored label is the original label that Giuseppe used when he started the first Martinelli winery on Martinelli Road in the 1880s.
The 2020 Giuseppe & Luisa Zinfandel has engulfing aromas of Santa Rosa plum flesh, toasted almond, and white pepper that jump from the glass. A ripe plum entry leads to the fresh raspberry mid palate. The balanced acid sensation lasts all the way from mid palate to the fresh, stone fruit finish.
