"Sporting the iconic old label Martinelli used in the early 1900s, the 2022 Zinfandel Giuseppe & Luisa pours a transparent but more jeweled red color and offers a fresh, juicy profile in the glass, with appealing fruit aromas of fresh red plum, spice, wild brambly herbs, and fresh floral perfume. Medium-bodied and ripe, it has more modest acidity, with a silky tannin structure and a juicy, approachable feel. It's fresh now and is going to drink well over the next 8-10 years."
