Martelletto Wines Greg Martelletto owns a wine distribution company based in San Diego. Driven by his Italian wine heritage, he has started his boutique label, Martelletto Wines. He sent me a bottle of his latest effort to sample and I was quite impressed. I should not have been surprised, however, since he is a fellow Stanford alum and those guys are talented!
Not much information on the website as yet but check back. The phone is 619-269-0874. Greg also leads tours to the Guadalupe Valley wine country in Baja. I visited Baja not too long ago and I was pleasantly surprised by the high quality of wines emerging from this region (no Pinot though as it is too warm).
Articles About Martelletto Wines
2005 Martelletto Gaia Vineyard Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noir
14.6% alc.. Aged 17 months in French oak. · Very appealing aromas of bright fresh red cherries with a complimentary touch of oak. Delicious dark red stone fruits with a sidecar of Asian spice. Noticeable but dusty tannins and a protracted fruity finish. The wine has an elegant bent which I like and avoids the ponderous and showy fruit that some Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noirs exhibit. A very nice effort. Reviewed February 18, 2008 ARTICLE »
