For five generations the Maggio family has been growing wine grapes in Lodi, and
providing elite California winemakers with superb fruit to make their wines. In 2002,
the family turned their own hand to winemaking, using the same estate grown fruit
that they had sold for so many years. Now they proudly put their name on bottles
that reflect their long and uncompromising commitments to sustainable agriculture
and winemaking excellence.
The wines are made from 500 acres of estate vineyards throughout the Lodi
American Viticultural Area, which are situated between the Sierra Nevada foothills
and the San Francisco Bay. The area's Mediterranean climate of warm days and
coastal evening breezes, is ideal for the cultivation of world-class wine grapes. The
vines, some of which are over 100 years old, are gnarled and sculpted by time,
yielding small amounts of intensely flavoured fruit to create wines that are the
ultimate expression of their terroir.
The Old Zinfandel grapes were picked at 25 to 26° Brix, for optimum ripeness, acidity
levels and quality. The grapes were cool fermented at 18 to 23°C, in order to slowly
extract the colour and tannins, whilst retaining the fresh fruit characters. Once
fermented through to dryness, the grapes were pressed off their skins and allowed to
settle prior to racking. The wine then went through a malolactic fermentation, giving
the final wine a smooth mouthfeel and softening the finish. Once complete, a
proportion of the wine was matured in various oak treatments for eight months, until
it reached the desired profile of oak complexity, while the remainder was stored in
stainless steel. 60% of the oak component used was medium to heavy toast
American oak and 40% of the oak was medium toast French oak.
This traditional Lodi Old Vine Zinfandel is deep and rich, showing ripe black fruit
flavours with subtle jam and chocolate overtones, typical of these family grown
vineyards. Gentle on the palate with a subtle, smoky finish.
Serve with well-seasoned grilled lamb, peppered steak, home-made beef burgers
and grilled sausages.
