Winemaker's Notes

Ruby red color. Aroma that is immediately noticeable for its flowery and fruity fragrance which combines with a pleasant vegetal background. Flavor aromatic, bursting with cherry and hints of wild rose.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Zingari is a fleshy, generous wine graced with expressive fruit. Sweet, floral notes add length and brightness to the long, caressing finish. This shows great depth without coming across heavy, quite a rarity in Bolgheri. The blend is equal parts Merlot, Sangiovese, Shiraz and Alicante, all aged in steel. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2017. "

Moretti, who also owns Franciacorta-based sparkling wine producers Bellavista and Contadi Castaldi, immediately hired Swiss architect Mario Botta, the man behind the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, to design the Petra winery. Based on models, it will be stunning when it’s completed."
