Vinos Zanzonico Nebbiolo Reserva 2018

MXN $837

Grape: 100% Nebbiolo

Region: La Grulla, Baja California Norte, Mexico

You’ll taste/smell: a powerful wine, and the best example of a reserva Mexican Nebbiolo we’ve ever seen! The Nebbiolo grapes are not picked until they have developed their flavors to their fullest potential and are fully mature, to give the wine all the delicious ripe fruit notes such as cherries, and blueberries, just very juicy. The 24 months of aging in French oak add structure to the wine, and toasty aromas, with tobacco, vanilla, roasted coffee, dark chocolate, and spices. Long and dry finish with earthy mushroom and dry fruit. Drink now, or you can age it another 10-15 years and it will only get better.

Good to have it with: go big! This wine is perfect for an indulgent night of red wine and juicy steak, a hearty stew, or a roasted rack of lamb.

The Producer: Vinos Zanzonico

Vinos Zanzonico is a family project winemaker Gerard Zanzonico and his wife Patricia Zanzonico.

Gerard had a 40-year-long career as a Napa Valley winemaker. He spent about half that time at Chateau Montelena. He was part of an all-star staff that helped elevate this celebrated Napa institution to rare heights.

Then he went on to leave his mark as a winemaker at Stonegate Winery, Staglin Family Vineyard, and Del Dotto Vineyards. Along the way Gerard worked with a lot of nice folks…he also made a lot of world-class wine. Four of those wines merited one hundred point scores from wine critic Robert Parker.

In 2015 the passion that drove Gerard about Napa dimmed a bit. It was time for him to leave Napa behind, but he wasn’t done with wine altogether. He was doing some consulting in Baja California, Mexico. The people there had two things Gerard most admired about winemaking: desire and passion.

So in 2019 Gerard, his wife and partner Patricia, and their dog Misty moved to Ensenada. They launched their brand Vinos Zanzonico with a small production of Chardonnay, Nebbiolo, and Syrah.

Their production is about four hundred cases a year.
