Italian grape varieties that were once an integral part of Mendocino viticulture are again drawing the attention of wineries here as well as other regions in the United States.
The wines we have made at Monte Volpe (which means Fox Mountain) since our first releases in 1991 are rich in color, fragrance, flavor and offer a great deal of finesse. Their structures are reminiscent of their Italian ancestry, but they display a vibrancy that is the hallmark of wines that are produced from fully ripened grapes.
The focus of this brand is on the classic red varieties of Tuscany and the supple white cultivars of Friuli and Campania, as well as our house blends.
Varieties: Pinot Grigio, Sangiovese, Montepulciano, Negroamaro, Aglianico, Vermentino, Tocai Friulano, Coda di Volpe, Greco di Tufo, Ribolla Gialla, Fiano, Falanghina, Sangiovese Rosato.
