Del Dotto Vineyards is a small, family owned winery located in beautiful Napa Valley that has been making small production premium wines for over 10 years. In 2005, the winery purchased 359 acres in the true Sonoma Coast overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The vineyard, named Cinghiale (Italian for wild boar), was previously owned by W.H. Smith.
93 Points Robert Parker: "The Pinot Noir Cinghiale Vineyard, which was cropped at 1.9 tons of fruit per acre, displays a classic Vosne-Romanee bouquet of spring flowers, forest floor, black raspberries, and sweet cherries. The wine exhibits round, generous, full-bodied flavors, excellent purity, and fine overall balance. There are 1,500 cases of this Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir."
