Tasting Notes
Finesse and elegance are hallmarks of wines from the iconic Bacigalupi vineyard, and the 2020 offering is no exception. Inviting aromas of citrus blossom and lemon verbena lift gracefully from the glass, while subtle hints of honeysuckle and jasmine linger after the first swirl. Focused and remarkably pure upon entry, an abundance of minerality and mouthwatering acidity deliver an exceptionally balanced and long-lasting finish.
Vineyard Notes
In 1956, Helen and Charles Bacigalupi purchased 121 acres of prime vineyard land along Westside Road, in the heart of the Russian River Valley. In 1964, they were among the first in the area to plant Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The Bacigalupi family grapes garnered fame in 1976 when they were used to make Chateau Montelena’s winning entry in that year’s Paris Tasting. The oldest vines that remain on the property were planted in 1967 on St. George rootstock and are a mix of head trained and cordon-trained vines. This historic block is one of the main components of our Bacigalupi Chardonnay blend.
