Monte Volpe Mendocino County Primo Rosso

Primo Rosso, first red in Italian, is a blend of many old world varietals, many which have been grown here for over a century: Zinfandel, Primitivo, Carignane, Petite Sirah and Syrah were grown on the benchlands and hillsides of the Ukiah and Redwood Valleys. All of these grape varieties make beautifully fruity wines with good dark colors, full tannins and good balanced acidity. These varieties complement each other in so many different ways.

This creative blend produces a wine of extraordinary balance. This wine has a dark purple-garnet color, with fruity aromas and flavors of plums, blackberry jam, spice and earth with hints of toasty oak. Rich full flavors, ample tannins and balanced acidity seamlessly carry through to a long, complex finish.
