Heitz Grignolino 2015
"The Heitz family's love affair with Grignolino began in 1961 when Joe and Alice purchased their first 8-acre vineyard.
Previous owner Leon Brendel christened the property "The One & Only", an homage to the only varietal he planted - the zesty Grignolino often referred to as "the little strawberry" in its native Italy.
Even avid fans sometimes mispronounce it, but we know what they want - our exuberant, aromatic "Green-o-lean-o!". "
Varietal: 100% Grignolino
Appelation: Napa Valley - St. Helena
Residual Sugar: Dry
Tasting Notes from the winery: "We are delighted to share our bright and zesty Grignolino with you. The scent of fresh strawberries in the glass is followed by a lively mix of red fruits on the palate. Soaring acidity is sculpted with delicate tannins and a nip of white pepper adds an assertive note to the finish. Our family has developed great affection for Grignolino since we discovered this Italian grape growing on our original site in 1961. Lightly chilled, it is one of our favorite aperitifs, and of course, it is perfect with your favorite Italian meal."
