2005 TENUTA S. ANNA PINOT GRIGIO

Lison - Pramaggiore

Venato, Italy

 

2005 Tenuta S. Anna Pinot GrigioThe Lison Pramaggiore DOC in Italy's Venato wine region was named after Borgo di Lison and Pramaggiore, towns that are at the center of local wine production. Winemaking activity dates to Roman times in this area, and was further developed when Venice was a powerful republic with interests in Europe, Africa and Asia. Even today, the largest concentration of of wineries is around the "wine towns" of Pramaggiore, Portogruaro, Annone Veneto and St. Stino.

This area is known as the "Classic Zone," where the terroir is particularly rich in calcium and calcareous clay. Additionally, these same fields reveal traces of substances derived from charcoal close to the surface, confirming the well-known fact that terroir rich in calcium produces quality wines abundant with aromatic accents.

The Lison Pramaggiore DOC area weather is mild, because of its latitude, proximity to the Mediterranean Sea, and the flat terrain, which exposes the vineyards to the prevailing winds.

The Denominazione d'Origine Controllata (DOC, or Denomination of Controlled Origins) is assigned to 14 vineyards cultivated in the area, which are promoted and protected by the Consortium of the Lison Pramaggiore DOC Wines, thus guaranteeing conformance with the legal production standards.

Thanks to the joint commitment of the producers and the Consortium, the quality and fame of the Lison Pramaggiore DOC wines is growing and gaining appreciation in Italy and overseas alike.

"The Pinot Grigio of Venice," Tenuta S. Anna is a straightforward Pinot Grigio, with great mineral and citrus character. It is clean and crisp on the palate, with a good finish.

"Best taste, best value!" - Wine Spectator.

2005 MACCHIA ZINFANDEL

"Mischievous"

Lodi, California


Macchia Wines Picking only small lots of the finest grapes possible from the state's most prestigious wine growing regions - California's "Best Spots" - Macchia's approach to winemaking is to enhance each vineyard's personality.

Macchia is Italian for "the spot." Husband and wife team Tim and Lani Holdener scour the Lodi Appellation for the best Zinfandel grapes used in this wine.

"Despite the advances in winemaking technology, the quality of the wine is ultimately determined by the quality of the grapes," explains Tim Holdener. "Always remember, it's all about the grape."

This deep-hued wine is a blend from four "old vine" Zinfandel vineyards. The rich, ripe berry flavors are highlighted with a subtle hint of vanilla oak making it a very food-worthy wine that can be enjoyed with everything from rich pasta sauces to a juicy barbecue steak.
