Graziano Mendocino County Old Vine Carignane
Graziano Mendocino County Old Vine Carignane
Carignane is an old world variety originally from Spain that worked its way into southern France, where it has become one of the most important varietals grown in the Languedoc-Roussillon region, alongside Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre. Mendocino County is the largest producer of Carignane in the premium wine growing regions of California, with the majority of the vineyards being old-vine. This old vine Carignane comes primarily from the 70 year-old Vincenzo Vineyard which is located in the white clayloam benchland soils near the Calpella Township in Mendocino County. This unique soil and the excellent exposure of this vineyard have combined to produce grapes that are intensely ripe and flavorful. 24 months of ageing in French and American oak barrels have soften the wine and added complexity to the intense aromas and full flavors of ripe plum, dark fruits and earth.
