All the fruit was harvested exclusively from our home Vineyard, Poggio alla Pietra, Cavedale Rd, on the Sonoma side of Mt Veeder. Steep and arid sites with volcanic red and rocky soil are the features of the south facing slopes of Petroni Vineyards. Hand farmed according to organic principles, the vines are carefully maintained and the crop reduced to ensure ripe and concentrated wines are produced from this outstanding site.
Each portion of fruit is picked at the right moment to harness the balance of acidity and ripe tannin and flavors. Perfectly ripe fruit is married to an elegant selection of 100% new French oak. This blend is produced only in the best vintages from barrels selected from our finest lots. The aim is to produce a wine that exhibits richness, complexity and a sense of place.
