In 2016, Dan Marioni went to the Coturri Winery, a historic winemaking gem in Glen Ellen, to see what harvest was all about, and essentially never left. Dan began working with Nic Coturri, Tony's son, making wines under the Sonoma Mtn. Winery label. The duo created a philosophy that honors the new and the old world, while being uncompromising about additions and subtractions in the winery.
Sonoma Mtn Winery closed up shop in 2019 and Dan launched Marioni Wine, producing a variety of wines and styles that lean into each vintage and work uniquely with each site.
A surprisingly light red from big and bold varieties. Fresh and plump aromatics of dark fruit and a touch of cedar. The flavors are highly concentrated. The vineyard was planted in the 80's and has always been farmed organic, no spray, no irrigation. Very low yields and very dense fruit comes from this hot and dry mountain top site in the Sonoma Coast.
