Edizione Pennino Zinfandel honors Francis Ford Coppola’s maternal grandfather, Francesco Pennino, a music composer and native of Naples, Italy. Two historic Zinfandel clones, Morisoli and Werle, complement each other in the creation of this unique wine, with Morisoli lending structure, sweet fruit, and spice in harmony with Werle’s inherent richness and dark fruit tones.
In 2017, Inglenook’s organically farmed estate vineyard received bountiful rainfall throughout winter and spring – nearly 50 inches. Fueled by the abundant rain, bud break occurred ten days earlier than it had the previous year, which foreshadowed an earlier harvest. Temperatures throughout the growing season were steady, except for three brief periods of heat during the summer. The Zinfandel vines were harvested by hand from the first to the third week of September.
With its vibrant violet-hued ruby color, the 2017 Edizione Pennino Zinfandel is youthful in appearance. Aromas are complex, ranging from ripe strawberry and black raspberry to warm blackberry pie, clove, and a hint of blood orange zest. The wine is velvety, generous, and round. This is a classic example of Inglenook Zinfandel.
