2016 MARTINELLI “BELLA VIGNA” PINOT NOIR
After earning a monstrous 96 Point score on their 2015, you might be wondering if this $45 Pinot could get any better… Take one sip of their 2016 and you’ll have a definitive answer. The 2016 combines fruit from several of the winery’s top sites including Bondi, Lolita and Zio Tony Ranches, with the largest share being from Bondi. They produce single vineyard Pinots from each of these incredible vineyards which sell for around $70/btl. At $45 the Bella Vigna offers a stunning value… The level of quality/value is made abundantly clear the moment this wine splashes into your glass as the bouquet grabs ahold of you and doesn’t let go. By the time it’s hits your palate, you’ll wish you had ordered more…
The Bella Vigna Pinot embodies all the hallmarks that made Martinelli one of Russian River’s most beloved producers. With the help of consulting winemaker Erin Green whom worked alongside Helen Turley in the early ’90’s on some of her projects, including Bryant Family & Martinelli, the winery has remained a paragon of the Russian River Valley. If you love BIG, rich, California Pinot Noirs, you’ll want to secure a case of this one, yesterday.
