2012 Vermentino, Paso Robles 750ml

This wine has not yet officially been released by the winery.  Get it on Woot first!

Giornata took the 2012 Vermentino in a more serious direction to provide more contrast to the il Campo white. A portion of the grapes spent some time on the skins and the resulting wine was aged in clay amphora. This not only added to the texture of the wine, but also increases the complexity. The nose has a distinct honey quality with some meyer lemon with notes of Jasmine. The palate has nice density and honey-lemon flavors with some spiced clove and mustard seed.

2011 il Campo Red Blend, Central Coast 750ml 2-Pack

Giornata's most impressive il Campo yet! Still bursting with bright acidity and ripe fruit, the wine shows great complexity in its spiced aromatic character. Vivid red fruit aromatics complement sandalwood, bay leaf and delicate hints of leather and tobacco. Flavors of bright cherry and blackberry flow with moderate intensity on the palate followed with exotic spice and ample tannin on the finish.

2011 Barbera, Paso Robles 750ml

Sacrificing the majority of the Barbera production to build an ideal il Campo blend left Giornata with a rather small production in 2011. Aged in half French oak and half stainless steel, the bit of Barbera reserved for this bottling is fresh, zingy, imminently gulpable. Traditionally-styled to highlight the brighter, lighter nature of Barbera, it’s a great match for seafood and delicate, elegant fare. Nuanced wild cherry and pomegranate flavors radiate across the palate with a delicate minerality emerging on the finish.

2012 Vermentino, Paso Robles 750ml

  • Composition: 100% Vermentino

Giornata's Vermentino this year is quite different from prior versions. In 2012 a pair of large Italian clay Amphorae was added to the cellar. This is the first release that spent time in the new clay vessels. Giornata fermented a small portion of their Vermentino on the skins for a couple weeks and drained the wine to 500 Liter Amphora for a few months of aging. The resulting wine has a great deal more complexity than previous vintages, with denser texture on the palate and a drier but longer finish. This is in contrast to the il Campo white that is fun, fresh and perfect for summer sipping without the intensity of the Vermentino.

2011 il Campo Red Blend, Central Coast 750ml 2-Pack

  • Composition
    - 20% Sangiovese Burbank Vineyard, Paso Robles
    - 20% Sangiovese White Hawk Vineyard, Santa Barbara County
    - 10% Sangiovese Luna Matta Vineyard, Paso Robles
    - 25% Merlot Margarita Vineyard, Paso Robles
    - 10% Barbera, Paso Robles
    - 15% Aglianico, Nebbiolo, odds and ends
After 10 short months in predominately neutral French barrels (with a small percentage in stainless steel), it is bottled in a relatively youthful state to preserve freshness and vibrancy. Light handling of the must and minimal intervention in the cellar are employed to help keep the wine in balance and maintain the integrity of this exceptional fruit.

Winery Details

Giornata

Owner:
Brian and Jennifer Terrizzi
Location:
Templeton, CA

The journey in creating Giornata started with a dream to create wines from Italian grapes grown in California employing the sensibility and philosophy of Italian winemaking. We work with the same grape vines (clonal material) as the best producers in Italy. The Central Coast of California possesses many of the attributes of the top wine growing regions of Italy. Our winemaking style leans more Italian than Californian in that we favor wines with balance and subtlety rather than intensity and extraction. We pick our grapes at lower sugar levels and handle our must gently in the cellar, thus resulting in wines that belong on the Italian dinner table possessing both ample acidity and tannin. Traveling to Italy on a regular basis, we continue to receive feedback on our efforts while researching Italian winemaking and viticultural methods.
