Pazzo (crazy in Italian) marries the best features of several varietals to create a unique and sophisticated blend of Sangiovese, along with some of the usual Napa Valley suspects. We source each varietal from different vineyards. This helps to ensure each of the varietals is grown in optimal conditions for its distinct viticultural needs. A finishing touch of Cabernet from our own estate vineyard rounds out the blend and heightens the mid-palate.
This aromatically dynamic wine shows off concentrated dark fruits initially, with more subtle notes of roasted herbs, and leather. Rich dark berry fruit with mocha and cocoa tones on the first sip release to an exceptionally rich mouthfeel and a bold tannin structure. ‘Delicious’ is the word most used to describe Pazzo.
