2017 Martellotto "Rosso di Sera" Red Blend Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara

Login to view price.

Martellotto's "Evening Red' Bordeaux blend Steals the Spotlight. One of the best value and high quality red blends from the Happy Canyon in Santa Barbara. 

Greg Martellotto believes blends are better and this wine highlights the symphonic harmony of three Bordeaux varietals: 40% Malbec, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 25% Cab. Franc.

Aromas of luxardo cherry, cedar, and fresh Med. herbs entice. Flavors of ripe plum, blueberry, and oak dance on the tongue.

 

Reviews

Already bottled, the 2017 Rosso di Sera is a plump, rounded, sexy wine that has loads of ripe cherries, blackberries, toasted spices, and earth. With medium to full-bodied richness and ample fruit, it's a delicious, fun wine to drink over the coming 4-5 years. The blend is 40% Malbec, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 25% Cabernet Franc, all aged 10 months in 20% new oak. ~90 points, Jeb Dunnuck
