Marks and reviews
"The best grapes make the best wine" is the philosophy applied by the Winery's founder, Louis M. Martini. Implemented at the estate since its creation in 1938, this exacting philosophy has enabled the winery to become one of the leading names in Californian wines. With its vineyards in the sumptuous Sonoma and Napa Valleys and its many award-winning wines, the estate is now world-renowned for its great Cabernet Sauvignons. In 2002, the Gallo family, close to the Martini family, bought the Winery and its vineyards, bringing new impetus and worldwide development with each passing vintage.
The Monte Rosso vineyard lies on steep terrain in the heart of the majestic Mayacamas mountain range, 1,300 feet above Sonoma Valley. The high altitude, low yields and ideal exposure promise sublime wines. The term "Monte Rosso" refers to the red, volcanic, iron-rich soil from which the wine is made, revealing wines of remarkable complexity and finesse.
Winemaking and ageing
Once the grapes have been harvested and sorted by hand, they are placed in gravity-fed vats to begin a three-day cold maceration. After fermentation, this Californian wine is aged in French and American oak barrels for 16 months.
The nose opens with fragrances of raspberry, cherry and blackberry, then gives way to subtle peppery and spicy aromas.
Complex and structured, the palate delights with its liveliness and length.
