PASSION FOR WINE
Deeply rooted in our Family's history
Stemming from a past built on hard work & dedication, Marco's grandfather grew his own grapes years ago in his small town of Andali in Calabria. Once matured, he turned his carefully nurtured grapes into wines that he sold & shared, and brought along to family gatherings. With this history at our foundation, it was only natural to uphold the traditions & values that lend to the passion for creating handcrafted wines to share within our own communities. Much like that of a vine, our roots run deep & keep us grounded as our wine legacy continues to evolve with our growing family.
Named after the owners' eldest son, our award-winning Lorenzo Forte is a unique French oaked Bordeaux-style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc & Merlot. Forte, meaning strong in Italian, lends well to this bold red featuring notes of raspberry & dark cherry ending with a smoky, peppery finish. Medium to full tannins enhance the full-bodied dark red flavors. Pairs well with hearty, rustic Italian dishes, hard cheeses & dark chocolate.
