Description

VARIETALS. 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 2% Petite Verdot.

VINEYARDS. The Cabernet Sauvignon is from Leslie’s Estate on Montebello Road and Arastradero Road in Palo Alto. The Merlot is from Cedar Lane in Arroyo Seco, and the Petit Verdot is from the Red Tail vineyard in Paso Robles.

WINEMAKING. Vino Di Vicino translates to “Wine of the Neighborhood” in Italian, and the neighborhood around the Picchetti Winery is home to some of the most unique and inspiring vineyards on the planet. Each lot was aged separately in French oak (45% new barrels) for 12-months. This Bordeaux style wine is very approachable and gorgeous now but can be held for a further 10-years.

TASTING.
Aroma: A sophisticated oak profile, with notes of red currant, cardamom, cinnamon, and bay laurel.
Palate: Smooth tannins, cedar, graham cracker crust, exotic spices and sweet aleppo pepper (dried red pepper used in Mediterranean dishes), with a lengthy, uplifting finish.

FOOD PAIRING. Great pairing with seared lamb chops with rosemary and sage butter, a hearty mushroom risotto, or any quality grilled steak.
