Intro to Scotto Family Vineyards Lodi Zinfandel –
The Scotto Family Vineyards Lodi Old Vine Zinfandel from California has a fragrant nose with lots of bramble mixed in with red fruits. The palate starts with lots of ripe red fruits and a hint of spice on the finish.
Full tasting note and wine making –
The grapes for the Scotto Family Vineyards Lodi Old Vine Zinfandel is hand-picked and gently crushed and was fermented on its skin for 9 days. After fermentation the Zinfandel was pressed to 4 year old French Oak barrels and aged for 22 months to increase the complexity and showcase the fruit. The finished wine exhibits aromatics of blueberry pie, cherry and black licorice. It is ripe, juicy and alluring on the palate with flavours of ripe red summer berries, pomegranate, cranberry, and hints of cinnamon and pepper. The well long and delicious finish is worthy of the history and work that has gone in to those old vines.
The producer –
Dominic Scotto emigrated to America from the island of Ischia in the bay of Naples in 1903 and worked as a ships caulker on the east coast, making wine in his spare time. The family winemaking tradition was passed from generation to generation and it’s now Anthony Scotto, Dominic’s grandson who runs the family company.
Originating from one of the oldest and most distinctive Zinfandel growing regions in California, the 2011 Scotto Family Old Vine Zin showcases beautifully the character of this storied region. The vineyard is located just to the east of the City of Lodi where the warms days are tempered by the cooling evening breezed emanating off the San Joaquin Delta. This makes for a long longer growing season, and ultimately a more complex and engaging wine. The vines are head pruned and planted in a 9 foot by nine spacing on well drained sandy loam soils which allow the roots to grow deep down.
