The 2014 Ex Dolio Falanghina comes from the two rows of this ancient Campanian grape planted on our estate vineyard. It is fermented on the skins in a dolium (the modern version of a Roman winemaking vessel), racked and placed back into the dolium for 6 months of aging.  This wine has a round mouthfeel with exotic aromas of ripe peach, mango and yellow plum and a subtle mineral element. The palate, offering juicy pit and tropical fruit flavors and a firming note of lemon zest, closes on an emphatic peach note, with very good energy and fruity persistence.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The estate consists of 72 acres of which 67.75 are planted to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah and Falanghina. This is a cool site with little rainfall and one of the longest growing seasons in the world. Our soils, Arroyo Gravelly Loam and Hanford Gravely Sandy Loam, provide a low-vigor, well-draining, disease- and pest-free medium for our vines. They also impart a subtle mineral quality to our wines. To preserve our local ecosystem, we have worked with viticultural consultant Steve McIntyre to develop a sustainable farming program, certified by the CCVT, tailored to our estate. In addition to protecting the local environment, we believe it allows us to produce wines that are more authentic and specific to our terroir.
