    "The 2016 Pinot Noir Rosella's Vineyard comes from one of the top sites in the region. It's ripe and sexy, yet stays fresh, lively and clean on the palate, with good acidity. It's a beautiful wine to drink over the coming 4-6 years." ~ Jeb Dunnuck

    The Vingiellos have only made 425 cases of A.P. Vin Rosella's Vineyard Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir, and we managed to get some. Bright and bursting with luscious red and blue fruit, with a wink of herbs and great acidity, you'll be glad if you jump on this bandwagon. The production of this winery in sum is about 2,000 cases of wine per year. Each one is made with tremendous devotion, attention and love, which you will taste in your first sip. 

    Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Pinot Noir Rosella's Vineyard comes from one of the top sites in the region. Coming from three clones; 115, 777 and Pisoni, it sports a deeper ruby color as well as a rocking bouquet of sweet raspberries, tart cherries, flowers, and mint. It's ripe and sexy, yet stays fresh, lively and clean on the palate, with good acidity. It's a beautiful wine to drink over the coming 4-6 years (I suspect it will keep longer)." Oct 2017

    Winery:  "In 1996, Gary Franscioni planted the 50-acre Rosella’s Vineyard, named for his wife, on their estate property just 11⁄2 miles north of Garys’ Vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands appellation of Monterey County. We have been sourcing grapes from this vineyard site since 2003 and believe that Rosella’s Vineyard, with Gary Franscioni’s exceptional farming practices, produces a unique wine representing the very best of the Santa Lucia Highlands. Santa Lucia Highlands has proven to be a world class appellation, and we are proud to offer a wine from this great vineyard."
