2017 Vincenzo Pinot Noir
This four-barrel bottling of Furioso Vineyard Pinot is named in honor of Giorgio’s father and grandfather. This first release of a new Pinot Noir line from our Dundee estate, the 2017 Vincenzo delivers aromas of plum, violet, and cinnamon spice which carry over to the palate. From there, it will open-up to more complex flavors of Bing cherry, herbal tea, and cedar. The wine is nicely structured, with a moderate acidity and a seamless integration. This wine will continue to improve with age, and we encourage cellaring for a couple more years for our Vincenzo to reach its full potential. We recommend decanting before serving if opened in its youth. This wine will find its perfect companion in the pairing of roasted duck in a peppercorn reduction.
