Ventimiglia Vineyards Chambourcin New Jersey Red 2007

Member Review by MTB:

A Gold Medal Winner at the 2009 NJ Wine Competition, this is a very interesting wine. Chambourcin with a slight blend of Syrah, Merlot and a little Sangiovese, this is a medium-bodied wine with a lovely deep ruby color. The nose is bright and fruity, and the mouth-feel is lovely and full. Aged for 16 months in French and Hungarian oak, there are notes of dark berries, particularly blackberry, in the mouth, with a light pepper finish. 95% of the grapes are grown locally in New Jersey, making this one of three of Ventimiglia’s New Jersey Reds.

The hand-crafted wine making of Ventimiglia Vineyard continues a family tradition passed down for generations. Our wines are made in small batches with carefully selected, top quality grapes. We use oak barrels and minimal chemical or mechanical intervention. Artful blending promotes optimal flavors, aroma, and finish. Our aim is to let you enjoy the delicious wine we share at our own table. Our founder and devoted winemaker, Gene Ventimiglia, was influenced at a young age by the European winemaking traditions which his grandfather, Eugenio Ventimiglia, brought to this country at the turn of the last century. For over thirty years, Gene has been making delicious wines to enjoy at home with his family and friends. Our dream to share our high quality, hand crafted wine has finally come true. In August 2006, with Federal Permit and New Jersey Winery license in hand, Gene and his wife, Anne, along with their family and good friends, began professional winemaking at Ventimiglia Vineyard in Wantage, New Jersey.
