Food Pairings for Martinelli Zinfandel Jackass Vineyard
"The year was 1899 when Giuseppe and Luisa Martinelli planted three acres of Zinfandel in the little town of Forestville nestled in the Russian River Valley. The special site they chose was a very steep slope of 60-degrees with a southeastern exposure." Winery website.To this day, this is a very special piece of ground producing zins full of aromas of boysenberry, brambly strawberry, and nectarine fruit. There is suppleness, here, with velvety blackberry and flinty plum flavors. Look, also for superior length.
