Winemaker Notes

"Fresh in primary fruit, jammy blackberry and cherry flavors, with a keen streak of acidity, and an overall sense of balance and complexity. Although this wine has no history of aging, it seems to have everything it needs to develop." –Wine Enthusiast

Founder, Gregg Linn also owner of Ambullneo winery, considers Nonno Zito wines an intersection of his passion and dreams. Every drop proudly honors his paternal grandfather Calogero Zito, a native of Ribera, Sicily. At the turn of last century, Gregg's grandfather bravely immigrated with his wife Giovanna to this new world of America, where he confronted the unknown to create a better and larger life.

Nonno Zito's label is a silhouette of two men sitting on a bench, each holding a glass of wine. Greg explains that the two men are him and his grandfather but since his grandfather died before he was born, it is a vision of how Gregg would spend the day with his grandfather. It's a peaceful moment, in an out-of-the-way place, free from noise and people where they could enjoy a glass of wine and Gregg could ask him questions about his life and passions.

Nonno Zito, California
The two men portrayed on the label of Nonno Zito bottles are of vineyard owner Greg Linn and his grandfather (“nonno”), Calogero Zito, a native of Ribera, Sicily. Linn’s grandfather passed away before he was born, so he never got the chance to know him. The label, depicting two shadows of men relaxing on a bench, represents how Linn would have spent a day with his late grandfather.

Linn produces Italian varietals out of his small, Central Coast California boutique vineyard. Varietals he produces include Tocai, Teroldego, Nebbiolo and Barbera.

The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces a good majority of the state's wine. This vast district stretches from San Francisco all the way to Santa Barbara along the coast, and reaches inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley.

Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including San Francisco Bay, Monterey, the Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Edna Valley, Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley.

While the region could probably support almost any major grape varietiy, it is famous for a few. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel are among the major ones. The Central Coast is home to many of the state's small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as larger producers also making exceptional wines.

Responsible for some of the most elegant and age-worthy wines in the world, Nebbiolo, named for the ubiquitous autumnal fog (called nebbia in Italian), is the star variety of northern Italy’s Piedmont region. Grown throughout the area, as well as in the neighboring Valle d’Aosta and Valtellina, it reaches its highest potential in the Piedmontese villages of Barolo, Barbaresco and Roero. Outside of Italy, growers are still very much in the experimentation stage but some success has been achieved in parts of California. Somm Secret—If you’re new to Nebbiolo, start with a charming, wallet-friendly, early-drinking Langhe Nebbiolo or Nebbiolo d'Alba.
