Product Details

expressive • concentrated • robust

The Martinelli family has been growing grapes in Sonoma County since the 1880s. At the ages of 19 and 16, winemaker Giuseppe Martinelli and his wife Luisa Vellutini left their small village in the Tuscany region of Italy and made their way to California searching for land to plant vines and start a winery. Over 100 years later, the 5th generation descendants of Giuseppe Martinelli continue to farm their historic vineyards entirely by hand, resulting in limited-production wines that are renowned for their expressiveness and regional character.

Translated as “Beautiful Vines,” Martinelli’s Bella Vigna is sourced from the best blocks of estate vineyards scattered throughout the Sonoma Coast, an appellation renowned for rich, concentrated styles of Pinot Noir. Harvested late in the growing season to ensure optimum ripeness and aged in 70% new French oak, this red offers mouth coating flavors of cherry pie, rhubarb, hibiscus tea, and holiday spices. This wine can be enjoyed now with dishes like grilled salmon, roast chicken, and glazed ham, but it also has the potential to age for another three to five years.
