Description: The Seghesio Zinfandels have been scooping Gold medals and Trophies for years now. Theiraccolades in theDecanter World Wine Awards and IWC proveto an international market that their Zins not only measure up to the competition, but are in the top rank... Now owned by Crimson Wine Group, whose primary focus is on estate-grown wines from some of California and Oregon's most prestigious producers, Seghesio remains focused on its family roots, with Pete overseeing viticulture and his cousin Ted making the wines. Italian consultant Alberto Antonini has helped them over the years to improve the quality of their Sangiovese (sourced from the oldest Sangiovese vineyards in California) and his influence can also be seen in the ripe, juicy, approachable style of Zinfandel which has become their hallmark.
