Features

2010 Tesoro Proprietary Red Blend, Sonoma Valley, Sonoma County 750ml 2-Pack

This wine has enticing aromas of black fruit, cassis, and fine leather cigar box.  Deep flavors of blackberry, black currant and cherry dusted with dark chocolate, layers of spice.  Soft and supple texture, balanced tannins and a nice, dry finish that leaves you wanting more.

Vineyard: All three vineyards for the Tesoro are in Sonoma County.  The Sangiovese is from Monte Rosso Vineyards, the Syrah is from Unti Vineyards and the Cabernet is from Caton Family Vineyards.

Vintage: The 2010 vintage was a changing year weather-wise.  We worked overtime in the vineyards and it shows in the quality.

Winemaking: Each of these varietals was fermented separately and blended three months before bottling.  This graceful, authentic blend was made in a s Super Tuscan style.

Bottled with love, for the joy of living.

It has taken me some time to finally continue and expand upon my grandfather’s tradition in winemaking, but after owning and managing a construction company, Creative Spaces, for 27 years, the time was right. With family and friends, and blessed by Monsignor O’Hara from St. Leo’s Church, I planted our first Sangiovese vines in May of 2000.

As the grapes grew, my son, Gian Carlo, and I built our family home at "Monte Terra." After moving into our new home on May 12, 2001, I began to study winemaking from two local winemakers, and took numerous related courses at UC Davis and Sonoma State University.

With our Sangiovese grapes ready to harvest in 2002, I took our first crop and my new winemaking knowledge and jumped in with both feet (less shoes). Now, with a number of harvests from both Monte Terra and other growers ~ some of the best in Sonoma County ~ behind me, I had honed my skills and won numerous awards, including two Best of Class awards and two Best of Show for my organically grown Sangiovese.

With winemaking in my blood, I asked the question, "Does the world need another winery?" And I thought, "Perhaps not, but the world does need to taste my wine."
