Ciao {FIRST_NAME}
 
The red wine you've been waiting for, 2014 Grande Riserva, now available for purchasegrr
Grande Riserva, as the name implies, represents the utmost and very best efforts of all that we do from the vineyard to the winery. In making this limited quantity wine, we used the finest and oldest Montepulciano, Petit Verdot and Sagrantino grapes, harvested at optimal ripeness and then triple sorted to create a decadent, powerful wine with a focused expression of Raffaldini Vineyards. We applied the Appassimento drying process to further concentrate the grapes' natural flavors and aromas. Finally, we placed the grapes in oak fermenters to further deepen the profile and age the wine in the best oak barrels available.

Less than 75 cases of this wine are available at $55 per bottle. Purchase limits are one case per person for wine club members and six bottles per person for the general public.

Attention Wine Lovers!
Ciao Amici -

There is nothing more glorious than the start of Summer in the vineyard. The flowers are in full bloom, the vineyard is bursting with color, and the fruit that will become the next vintage is here, signaling the countdown to harvest.

To celebrate the season, I've curated some experiences that complement and highlight what we do to make Raffaldini Vineyards unique. The Salon Tasting is a comparative tasting of our Sangiovese alongside stellar examples of this classic Italian grape. The long-awaited release of our 2017 Grande Riserva, a wine that highlights the fullest potential of our estate and exemplifies the laborious Appassimento drying method. Finally, Afternoon in Tuscany is everything I love about Italy -the wine, the food, and the music-right here in the Carolinas, set to the stunning backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

I look forward to sharing our journey with you.


A presto,


Jay

An Update from Jay Raffaldini

An Update from Jay Raffaldini
Greetings All -
 
I hope this email finds everyone and their families happy and healthy. With warmer weather upon us and the vineyard in full swing I would like to use this opportunity to update you on some exciting developments at Raffaldini.
 
Firstly, some of you may have already noticed two new street signs have appeared, one on the newly paved Groce Road, half way up before the turn into Raffaldini and the other immediately after the stone entrance gates. These are signs to alert visitors that this is Black Rooster Territory. Black Rooster translates from the Italian as Gallo Nero and is used to mark the boundaries of the Chianti region in Tuscany and the Black Rooster appears on all wines designated as Chianti Classico. As we produce Sangiovese (the grape used to make Chianti), and we are frequently referred to as Chianti in the Carolinas, I thought it fitting that we designate our own area.
 
Not many people know the story behind the Black Rooster. As legend has it for centuries the ruling families of Florence and Siena were at war and one day the patriarchs agreed it was time to end the fighting and permanently agree to a boundary line. Their method chosen was classically Tuscan – at first rooster crow in the morning each family would send off their fastest horse from their city center (frequently a church) and wherever the riders met on the road between the cities would be the boundary. The ruling Florentine family had a Black Rooster who they starved and kept in a dark box for days while the Sienese had a White Rooster and was endlessly pampered and lazy. On the day of the race the Black Rooster sang much sooner than usual given his extreme hunger and this gave the Florentine rider a huge head start. As the border is much closer to Siena (meaning more land for the Florentines) the Black Rooster is a centuries old source of irritation for one family and joy for the other. Happily for both, the area around the border happens to be Chianti which is home to the greatest Sangiovese wine made in the world. Such is the wonderful nature of life in Italy. 
 
I am also pleased to announce the arrival of our eight new large custom made oval and round oak bottis (each the equivalent of eleven standard oak barrels), all handmade by the famous Gamba Cooperage in Asti, Italy. They join the three existing bottis we purchased last year. These bottis will last for half a century and add a beautiful structural element to our red wines. In addition we are furthering our commitment to fermenting in oak (rather than stainless steel) and have received another four oak fermenters from Gamba to complement the two onsite now. I simply love oak fermented wines, for their depth and complexity are second to none. This year we will even ferment our Vermentino in oak for the first time. I believe this very significant investment in large oak vessels will allow Raffaldini to push the quality envelop even further in our attempt to make the best wines we possibly can.
 
A Presto!



Jay

Beware the Wines of March

 
Beyond the Vines...Into the Community



Raffaldini is Proud to be the Official Wine Sponsor of Piedmont Opera

Donizetti’s bel canto comedy, The Elixir of Love is as charming as it is funny. Nemorino, is a likeable but hopeless romantic who has fallen in love with the bold and quick-witted Adina. She isn’t won over by his pleas of love and things get worse when she has an offer of marriage from the self-important Sergeant Belcore. When a dubious salesman, Dulcamara, rolls into town he offers Nemorino what seems like the perfect solution.
