2021 Zinfandel Giuseppe & Luisa

Giuseppe and Luisa Martinelli planted three acres of Zinfandel in the Russina River Valley in the 1880s. The old vineyard is know known as Jackass Hill and remains the steepest non-terraced hillside in Sonoma County. Nearly one century later Giuseppe and Luisa's grandson, Lee Martinelli Sr., followed in their footsteps by planting a Zinfandel vineyard. He grafted bud wood from the centurion vines onto low-vigor rootstocks and planted them one meter by two meters apart, equating to about 2,000 vines per acre, on a rocky knoll above the Martinelli Winery Tasting Room in Russian River Vallery.
