The Peirano Estate in Lodi, east of San Fransico, was founded in 1879 by Giacomo Peirano who imported zinfandel cuttings from his family’s vineyards near Genoa. Long ageing in oak barrels allows the flavours to fully develop. This serious and complex wine has aromas of rhubarb and red and black cherry. Flavours are of red cherry, strawberry, cocoa and toast. Try this wine with roast duck or stewed venison.
