Ettore wines express the best of Mendocino’s complex terroir, wines that channel the soul of their abundant natural surroundings—and are only produced from organic, hand-harvested, and estate-grown grapes. From aromatic and elegant Chardonnay to deeply rich Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, Ettore Biraghi brings his Old World Italian winemaking heritage to the New World, crafting wines of finesse and power, elegance and purity.
We tasted the Ettore 2018 Merlot Zero and found it bright dense, clean and rich, with plenty of mocha notes to the dark fruit and ripe spice flavors. The cocoa finish shows peppery hints, with a creamy texture and a load of dark cherry fruit and spices.
Their 2018 Chardonnay Reserve was satiny, ultrarich and deeply complex, with layers of floral, butterscotch, fig, apricot and pear flavors that are impeccably balanced; while the flavors are bold and concentrated on the entry. This wine turns amazingly elegant and sophisticated on the finish.
Ettore’s 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature features a nice dark core of cassis and creamed plum notes laced with violet, graphite and juniper hints. The finish flows clean, with the graphite edge extending as long as the fruit for lovely balance.
Ettore wines offer elegant and clean aromas with floral, fruity flavors making it the wine to sip along with a meal or on its own. They assure a memorable and elegant experience. Visit http://www.ettore.wine
