Two Great -sannes That -sanne Great Together

-sannes of the world, unite!

It just makes so much sense. The nutty, spicy character of one perfectly complementing the floral, fruity notes of the other. They even share half of their names. This is why Marsanne and Roussanne are so often blended in their native Rh​ône region, and why they unite to such pleasant effect here.

Also, the winemaker made it for his mom. That's who Laura is. You wouldn't make a crappy wine in honor of your mom, would you? Well, you might if you don't really know what you're doing. But Justin Lattanzio has been at this for a while, and he worked under the famed Heidi Barrett before starting his own thing. Ma Laura has nothing to worry about.

2011 Laura’s Cuvée White Wine, Russian River Valley 750ml 4-Pack

The 2011 Laura’s Cuvee is a brilliant pale gold. On the nose are the telltale orange peel, honey and nectarine scents, as well as a hint of lemon curd. In the mouth, the wine is crisp at first with nectarine, peach and lemon followed by a more dense honey goodness. The 2011 vintage produced a wine that is more light on its feet and nervy than is typical for the varieties, particulary Marsanne. As a result, this wine will be great by the poolside and the dinner table.

Winemaker Notes: This wine was made from a patch of 12 year old Roussanne and Marsanne vines located in the heart of the Russian River Valley. I decided to make this white wine blend for two reasons. First, and most importantly, Laura is my mother. She is the passionate white wine lover in the family, so I wanted to make a wine for her. I can’t put into words how lucky I feel to have a Mom like mine. Secondly, I have always had an interest in the white wines made in the Rhone valley of France. Famously noted for its hearty reds, the Rhone region also produces a relatively small quantity of very distinctive whites. Many of these white wines contain Roussane and/or Marsanne as major components.

You get something unique with these wines, aromatically and texturally. In the nose you often sense honeycomb, orange peel, flowers (like Jasmine), nectarine and other stone fruits. The mid palate offers similar flavors but also a pleasant oily texture which creates richness. These wines often age quite beautifully.

Our Philosophy
At Lattanzio Wines, we believe that great wine is made in the vineyard. This is our core belief; it guides us in the day to day crafting of our wines. We strive to showcase our source vineyards, not our winemaking skills.

Our objective is to seek out a handful of unique, cool climate vineyards on the West coast and hand craft small quantities of wine from those vineyards. The vineyards we work with must be meticulously maintained, dedicated to sustainable farming, naturally low yielding and possess that “sense of place”. Only the right combination of geographical location, soil, aspect, varietal/clone selection and sustainable farming practices makes a vineyard suitable for our program.

We believe it is the winemaker’s job to take perfectly ripened grapes and, through a gentle fermentation, simply coax the complex flavors and aromas into the wine bottle. To that end, our wines are fermented with indigenous yeasts, are subject to minimal handling, aged in small percentages of new French oak, and bottled without fining or filtration. Excessive manipulation in the winery only takes away from the ultimate expression of the source vineyard and the resultant wine’s inherent personality.

Winemaker
Justin Lattanzio moved to San Francisco from the East Coast in the Fall of 1996, knowing very little about wine. However, with all of the great restaurants and wine shops in the San Francisco Bay area, it was easy for him to find and to taste some of the finest wines from California and around the world. It wasn’t long before Justin became enamored with wine. He proceeded to spend much of his free time tasting wine as well as reading about it.

In 2003, after several years working in the environmental consulting and biotechnology fields, Justin decided to move up to Sonoma County to pursue a career in winemaking. He worked for two years in the cellars at Copain Wines and Copain Custom Crush. There, he managed the crushpad and assisted such highly regarded wineries as Pisoni Vineyards, Carlisle Winery and DuMol with their wine work. It was at Copain where Justin developed his passion for Pinot Noir and Syrah made in a more traditional, old world style.

In May of 2005, when the opportunity arose to work with world renowned winemaker Heidi Barrett (of Screaming Eagle and Dalla Valle fame) at the new Revana Family Vineyard in Napa Valley, Justin didn’t hesitate. At Revana, Justin was able to fine tune his winemaking skills working with Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah from some of the best vineyards in Napa Valley.
In 2005, Justin and his wife Hillary took the leap and created Lattanzio Wines based on their passion for crafting wines of classic elegance with a true sense of time and place.
