Blend, California, United States
This is a fascinating blend of grapes: Zinfandel, Sangiovese, Negroamaro, Carignan, and Nebbiolo. The wine shows lots of jammy fruit on the nose and offers quite a juicy mouthful.
Italian grape varieties that were once an integral part of Mendocino viticulture are again drawing the attention of wineries here as well as other regions in the United States. The wines we have made at Monte Volpe (which means Fox Mountain) since our first releases in 1991 are rich in color, fragrance, flavor and offer a great deal of finesse.
