Winery Notes:
Vineyard & Harvest:
The 2008 growing season started with bud break in mid March after a cool and dry winter. With the lack of rainfall, vine canopies were below normal vigor which produced small clusters with tiny berries. Temperatures during the growing season were very calm and consistent making it possible to harvest at the optimum maturity producing our best vintage yet.

The History:
Ezio has been a family favorite since the inaugural vintage. This wine was named in honor of Ezio Donati, the first of the Donati family born in the New World.

Open top fermentation utilizing twice daily punch-downs 100% Barrel Aged; 39% New French Oak, 15% New American Oak, 46% Neutral French Oak
