Debuting in June for Father’s Day 2018, Angelini Wines Ltd. released its own tribute: a wine in honor of Vittorio (Victor) Angelini, 91-year-old father of Angelini Wines’ Julius Angelini. “If it weren’t for my father, it isn’t likely that I would be in the wine importing business. And it’s not all just about the wine, it’s about the culture, the farm, the food and celebration of life,” said Angelini. Vino di Vittorio is a blend of primarily Sangiovese, “a little Merlot and, of course, Pergola Rosso,” from the Angelini Estate, explained Angelini. “The Vernaccia vine, now known as Pergola Rosso, is estimated to be over 100 years old, grows in front of the farm house on the Angelini Estate [in Italy]. There are less than 10 wineries that produce this Pergola Rosso commercially. It is a very aromatic varietal that is unique and a surprise to all who taste it, which is why it had to be part of the meaningful blend of Vino di Vittorio.” 2012 Angelini Estate Vino di Vittorio can be found in the Angelini Wines Ltd. portfolio along with its other imports.
