Winemaker's Notes:

"Rosso," explains winemaker Scott McLeod, "is a Zinfandel-based wine which includes Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Syrah." The result? Francis Coppola Presents Rosso has become an instant success. Wine Enthusiast honored it "Wine of the Month." Praise for this unpretentious red has come from many, but the best thing to do is find out for yourself.

The 2000 Francis Coppola Presents Rosso is a Zinfandel-based wine blended with Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Syrah. The result is a beautiful combination of vivid California fruit in an authentic Italian style. On the palate, Rosso is bursting with ripe plum and fresh berry flavors with an up-front style, featuring firm yet smooth tannins, while plum and raspberry flavors with smoky oak round out the finish. With its unique and hearty style, Rosso is easy to drink and meant to be appreciated at the table. Rosso can be enjoyed every day with hamburgers and pizzas and is a perfect accompaniment to hearty Italian dishes.

About Francis Ford Coppola Winery:

Francis Ford Coppola Winery, re-opened in July 2010, is the latest venture from Francis Ford Coppola, whose passion for wine, food and adventure is nowhere more evident than in this new production – a winery resort located in the heart of Alexander Valley, California. Among the many attractions at the property, Francis Ford Coppola Winery features a wine tasting bar, two restaurants, swimming pools, a movie gallery, a performing arts pavilion and a park area with game tables and bocce courts.

Francis puts it best, saying the winery is meant to be "a wine wonderland, a park of pleasure where people of all ages can enjoy all the best things in life – food, wine, music, dancing, games, swimming and performances of all types. A place to celebrate the love of life."
