Pazzo (crazy in Italian) marries the best features of several varietals to create a unique and sophisticated blend of Sangiovese accompanied by some of the usual Napa Valley suspects. To help ensure each varietal is grown in optimum conditions, we source the grapes from various locations in the Valley. With great care and expertise, we combine these selected lots to create an unconventional but delectable wine. Cin cin!
