Rossi-Wallace is a venture between husband and wife Ric Forman (Forman Winery) and Cheryl Emmolo (Emmolo Winery). Annie ROSSI and Roz WALLACE are the mothers of Ric and Cheryl. And since a mother’s influence is undeniable, it made sense that they should honor their spirited (and red-headed) mothers. After all, the couple inherited their deep love and respect for the land from these passionate women.

Ric Forman’s notes: “Our Zinfandel is a long-time idea come to fruition. We have felt for some time that Zinfandel and Sangiovese might be compatible in the same manner that Cabernet and Merlot compliment one another. We had to try it! Their compatibility is indeed real. The Zinfandel was sourced from a high-elevation vineyard in the cool Chiles Valley, the Sangiovese from the Antinori Vineyard – same source as our mainstay Pinot Noir. 80% Zinfandel and 20% Sangiovese worked. The absolutely beautiful raspberry Zin fruit mixed with a more spicy Sangiovese berry flavor is stunningly complex and beautiful. The Zinfandel acidity with the Sangiovese extract round out the exotic flavors into what is utterly different and delicious and will, in time, we feel, be quite outstandingly impressive. 8 barrels produced.”
Galloni 93 Points: “The 2015 Zinfandel is actually 75% Zinfandel from Chiles Valley Nichelini Vineyard and 25% Sangiovese from Antinori’s Atlas Peak estate. Bright red stone fruit notes give the wine its punch, bold personality, while the bright mountain acidity adds freshness throughout.”
