Had three wines with dinner; 2001 Spring Mountain Ellivette, A Villa Bucci Verdicchio del Castelli di Jesi, and this Martinelli...and the Martinelli was a hands down favorite. Picked as the best wine by all dinner guests. It was neither too overpowing in fruit nor alcohol, and one of the best wines I've ever had with dinner. Very tasty and well balanced. Weighs in @ 15.6% alcohol and I never tasted it...but it snuck up on us nonetheless. I have looked at other reviews of this wine, and they are on the low side, but I can only rate it based on my tasting, and it was delicious. One of the best Pinots I've ever had. Had a beautiful red color. Based on this tasting, I would not hesitate to purchase a Martinelli again.
