2014 Sparkling Zinfandel
 
About This Wine:
Sparkling red wines have a long tradition in the Loire Valley, Germany and Australia, and Picchetti has built on this convention with an innovative California twist. We have taken a full-bodied Zinfandel still wine that was fermented on the skins, and then allowed it to undergo a secondary fermentation in the bottle using traditional Champenois methods. This refreshingly dry vintage possesses perfect streamers and elegant creaminess. The nose is intense, with aromatics of raspberry, black cherry and hints of toasted yeast. It is rich and full in the mouth, with a frothy effervescence that sweeps across the tongue, and a dancing mousse that gives it a delicious lift. The plump red fruit races with dynamism, extending its supple texture into more dramatic territory than traditional sparklers often venture. Enjoy it chilled as an aperitivo with an assortment of hors d’oeuvres, pair it with anything fresh from the grill, or serve it with richly flavored dishes such as duck a l’orange.
A unique bubbly delight!
