Inglenook Edizione Pennino Zinfandel.
History
Edizione Pennino Zinfandel pays tribute to Francis Ford Coppola's maternal grandfather, Francesco Pennino. Born in Italy, Franceso emigrated to the United States as a young man and started a music publishing company known as "Edizione Pennino". Our estate Zinfandel bears the music company's logo in its original form and to add to the nostalgia, each vintage bottling has one of Pennino's song titles imprinted on the cork. When Coppola purchased the Inglenook estate in 1975, it was recommended that he remove the Zinfandel vines, but because this varietal has Italian origins and has always been enjoyed by his family, he insisted the Zinfandel remain.



The Vineyards
The Zinfandel for Edizione Pennino is grown in a variety of vineyard blocks scattereed across Inglenook's 235 contiguous acres. The old dry-farmed, headpruned vines, which provide the backbone of the blend, offer concentrated berry flavors and spice; younger plantings of the historic Morisoli clone contribute fresh raspberry fruit flavors, lively acidity and spice notes; the historic Werle selection adds dark boysenberry aromas and a round texture. Because we farm organically on the estate, it requires extra effort to cultivate our Zinfandel, as this varietal is one that's susceptible to mildew and botrytis, but we think the rewards outweigh the added work that goes into creating this wine.
