2011 Martinelli Vellutini Ranch Zinfandel RRV
Similarly steep slope, similar soil, and same vine selection as Martinelli's famous, and two-and-a-half times more expensive, Jackass Hill Zinfandel. Get a taste from this very special spot, nestled in the redwoods very near to the Russian River as it makes its final approach to the Pacific, then move on to the Jackass Hill when you're ready to splurge. From Martinelli Winery: "The Vellutini Ranch is bordered on the east by Jackass Hill and on the south by Jackass Vineyard, sharing the same Franciscan soil type. Lee and Carolyn Martinelli hired their teenaged grandson, Anthony Britton, Jr., to help plant the steep slope with Zinfandel in 1999. The two vineyards are comprised of eight small blocks. The Zinfandel is planted with bud wood from the Martinelli family's centurion grapevines Jackass Hill and Jackass Vineyard."
