Gamba Etrusca Velia Red 2017

Gamba Etrusca Velia Red is made from Primitivo, Zinfandel and Petite Sirah.

Etrusca Velia is a unique proprietary blend culled from several vineyard sites in the beautiful Russian River Valley. The carefully sourced Primitivo, Zinfandel and Petite Sirah grapes for Velia benefit from the AVA’s diverse soil types, and varying micro-climates.

As unique, compelling and mysterious as Velia herself... dark and lively, the nose offers a bounty of fresh berries and subtle notes of cedar. On the palate rich briary patch notes of ripe raspberry, fruit compote, and black cherry glide into a finish of allspice, clove and a hint of anisette. This unique proprietary blend is created from fruit sourced from our prized, and sought-after partner ranches growing in the Russian River Valley AVA. Our mission at Etrusca is growing and sourcing the highest quality grapes and blending them in the spirit of discovery. Enjoy!
