Planted in 2000, named after the Martinelli's Zio (Uncle) Tony who established the family's farming in the late 1800's originally planting potatoes on the current vineyard site. Goldridge soils, clay and loam produce a dusty earth component making the 470 Syrah clone a little richer, rounder, and more seductive. Trellised vines, organic farming
Vinification: 60% whole cluster, no crushing, only destemmed
