WINE NOTES

2018 Sauvignon Blanc, DeNatale Vineyard RRV

DeNatale off east side road in the Russian River Valley appellation. 1 ton/acre yield (very low yield) of one of the smallest family owned SB vineyards in the RRV. Cool climate Sauvignon Blanc, picked slightly green on August 30th, picked with lower sugar in effort to maintain higher acidity and lower pH. Native fermentation on the skins, whole berry, macerated for 36 hours. Pressed and finished off in neutral French oak for 6 months, where it finished malolactic. Sandro made this wine to fit the model of the dinner table wine for our family. At 10 ABV, this wine is a perfect companion for any aperitif, cocktail, or at the dinner table. A bright and clean wine with reminiscence of ripe pear and a strong handle of green apple. This is a straightforward wine making you long for more with a 10.5 ABV this wine can flow for hours. Drink now – 2020.

2018 Sangiovese, DeNatale Vineyard RRV

DeNatale off east side road in the Russian River Valley appellation. Small family owned vineyard who only sells Sangiovese to D’Argenzio. We let the 2018 vintage hang longer on the vine than the previous vintage to try and bring out darker berry flavors and pigment. Because I had very little risk of rain and a longer growing season. Seeds were browning and the acidity maintained the structure of the fruit, without the sugars skyrocketing. So, we did a night harvest at 23.5 brix at full flavor. After a slow and cooler fermentation, the wine was placed in 600 liter DeJernac punchens (or 140 gallon) from the Basque region of France, for malolactic, thereafter racked and returned to the barique. This wine is already developing rich texture with hints of oregano and basil, slightly herbaceous with layers of cherries and blackberries intertwine. It is a savory yet dusted with cacao with a well-balanced acidity and tannin structure. Drink now – 2025.

DeJernac Punchens – from the south of France, in the Basque region. The wood was especially made for us with extra old oak (XO). Adds length complexity and density.

2018 Pinot Noir, Green Valley, RRV

Marcucci Vineyard off of Laguna road, located in the sub-appellation of Green Valley, which is the cooler portion of the RRV. The name of the game is delicatessen, yummy yummy yummy…. Elegance and flavor extraction was the driving factor of the picking date and winemaking. Harvested at less than 23 brix, our efforts were to balance out tannin and acidity, by maintaining a lower ABV wine. A cool and gentle fermentation dictated a 10-day maceration, after that it was gently pressed and racked in neutral oak where it finished malolactic. Vibrant yet layered, this pinot will age well, plenty of acidity to carry it into the next decade once bottled. If you are a “Pinotphile”, you will get this wine. All about the location, winemaking, and pinot itself.

2017 Wine Releases

We are kicking off this summer with new wines! At the beginning of June we bottled 2017 vintages of wine club exclusive Sangiovese, our acclaimed Super Tuscan Red Blend, and for the first time have Italian varieties of Negroamaro and Dolcetto. The overall philosophy of the 2017 harvest was to pick earlier in the season, at a much lower sugar concentration while maintaining bright acids and vitality. Then ten strong months in New French Oak barrels, these wines became multidimensional and yet approachable. To keep the integrity of these wines, we recommend holding them for a minimum of three to twelve months, prior to drinking them. All new releases are available for purchase at both our Santa Rosa Winery and Burbank Wine Room. Thank you for being patrons of the D’Argenzio Family Winery!

2017 Sant’Angelo Sangiovese
DeNatale Vineyard, Russian River Valley
The 2017 Sant’Angelo Sangiovese brandishes its ripe medium bodied cherry notes with a significant yet approachable acidity. Its grapes originate from DeNatale Vineyard located in the Russian River Valley where this past summer’s mild climate was complemented by a few short bursts of heat aiding in a riper and juicier profile. To top it all off, the grapes resided under canopies of shade culminating its bright and acidic structure. For the Pinot drinker that wants just a little more.

2017 Dolcetto
Foxhill Vineyard, Mendocino County
A harder to find grape varietal in California, our Dolcetto grapes hail from Foxhill Vineyards in Mendocino County where early warmer days in the growing season ripen theses berries perfectly. It is furthermore characterized by rich fruitiness complemented by a quintessential balance that takes form of earthy tones interchanged with the Italian portion of “Dolce”.
$38/bottle

2017 Super Tuscan Red Blend
Always a crowd pleaser, our Super Tuscan is a superb blend of four different varieties, which come from four of the best barrels selected by our winemaker Sandro Tamburin. Our Sangivese holds the body of this blend while the Cabernet brings structure and the Negroamaro and Dolcetto provide tannin and aroma. This one is worth keeping for a while.
$40/bottle

2017 Negroamaro
Foxhill Vineyard, Mendocino County
The Negroamaro is a grape varietal that originally derives from the Puglia region of Italy, a region that is known to accommodate sweltering heat for a large part of the year. Therefore, the Negroamaro grape which roughly translates to ‘black and bitter’ in Italian is known to be a big wine with an immense yet refined tannic structure. D’Argenzio Winery has reversed this notion, by harvesting this fruit much earlier and producing a lower alcohol wine with great acidity and aroma. Perfect for your everyday table wine.
