The astonishing concentration of flavours that Seghesio achieve in their wines can be attributed to the age of the vineyards, some of which were established as far back as 1895. Italian consultant Alberto Antonini has assisted in improving the quality of their Sangiovese (which is sourced from the oldest vineyards of the variety in California) and his influence can also be seen in the ripe, juicy, approachable style of Zinfandel that has become Seghesio's hallmark. Displaying freshness, purity of fruit, balance and elegance that can be difficult to achieve with the variety, the Seghesio Zinfandels have scooped trophies and Gold medals at the Decanter World Wine Awards and International Wine Challenge for a number of recent years. Deeply perfumed aromas of dark berries and old vine Zinfandel's woody spiciness. Layered bright fruit flavours reminiscent of a rich berry pie with a toasted crust. A vibrant acidity and balanced tannins thanks to low yields in the vineyard which continue through the long, persistent finish.
