Moretti Wines

Moretti is dedicated to producing small-lot, well-balanced, food-friendly wines in a European tradition - meant to be paired with food.  Our background and wine experience comes from the old world, and we strive to produce similarly styled wines using excellent Santa Barbara County grapes.  We use one of the best California winemakers, Steve Clifton, who has extensive experience in winemaking in Europe and in California, and who knows how to let the grapes speak for themselves - of their origin, type, vineyard, climate - without forcing them to sing a different tune.  Our wines are only sold here, in our tasting room, and in a few select restaurants.  Our production is a slim 400 cases per year!

2011 Moretti Pinot Noir, Machado Vyd. - Library Release

This is our first Pinot Noir from this vineyard which is planted to a very special clone of Pinot Noir – the Mt. Eden Clone. This is probably the oldest clone of Pinot Noir in California and was originally brought over from the best of the Louis Latour vineyards in the 1880s. It has similar characteristics to the Pommard clone – deep, dark and smooth. The nose has notes of boysenberry and paprika. The palate is complex with notes of cranberry, raspberry, black cherry and dusty cocoa with a long finish. This vintage spent 16 months in oak (15% new, 85% neutural.) The resulting wine expresses what we feel is the best of the Sta. Rita Hills – darker berry fruit balanced by minerality and acidity, making it an ideal match with pork, lamb, and mushroom dishes…and of course – truffle cheese!

2012 Moretti Rosso Mio

This is a blend of Dolcetto, Barbera and Nebbiolo. The bouquet shows hints of roses and violets from the Nebbiolo and Barbera, and rich fruit from the Dolcetto. On the palate the flavors unfold in layers – first the boysenberry and lively acidity of the Barbera, then the bright, dark cherry fruit of the Dolcetto, and finishes with the mature, deep notes and earthiness of the Nebbiolo. It is mouth-filling, with well-integrated, medium tannins. The long, long finish is reminiscent of chocolate covered strawberries. This wine will pair well with a wide variety of food like grilled meat, hard cheeses, cured meats, pizza, pastas and stews.

The back of the palate gives you hints of cola and chocolate and leaves your palate cleansed – perfect for food-pairing. Suggested with: filet mignon, lamb or anything with black pepper or slightly spicy.

2014 Moretti Pinot Grigio

One of the very few Pinot Grigio vineyards in Sta Rita Hills produces a delicate and vibrant summer sipper. Light floral notes and aromas of tangerine and grapefruit lead to a palate of lemon peel, sweet grapefruit and apple. The lively acidity assures it will be a great match with light summer fare – seafood, grilled veggies, cheese, and fried foods. Grab it while you can as this vineyard has been grafted over to another varietal and there will be no more Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Grigio!

2014 Moretti Pinot Noir, Strange Vineyard

Our first Pinot Noir from this exciting vineyard.  Located above Drum Canyon on the eastern side of the Sta. Rita Hills, this vineyard is slightly south facing capturing all day sun and meticulously farmed by our winemaker, Steve Clifton.  Planted to clones 777, 115 and 667, which give the wine depth and structure.  We use 10% stem inclusion to create a bit of spice and earth, native yeast to help it speak of the terroir and 70% neutral barrels and 30% one year old barrels so as not to mask the beautiful vibrant pomegranate and cherry fruit flavors.  The elegance and balance of this young wine is already extraordinary.

2015 Moretti Bianchetto

An elegant combination of three of Northern Italy’s most distinguished white grapes:  Tocai Friulano, Arneis and Cortese.  All are fermented and vinified separately.  Cold temperature fermentation and no malolactic bring out the fresh fruit flavors of these varieties.  The aromas of pear and citrus jump out of the glass and lead to a rich-textured palate of ruby grapefruit and almonds and a finish full of dried apricots.  Excellent on its own, with seafood, with spicy food and appetizers.

2015 Moretti Vermentino

Vermentino, a grape originally from Italy, loves the sandy soil and warm days found in the Santa Ynez Valley. The expression is characteristic of the lush Vermentinos found in Sardinia and on the Tuscan coast. The wine is aged in neutral (over 5 year old) barrels and goes through a very small amount of malolactic fermentation. White flowers, citrus and tropical fruit on the nose lead to a bright cornucopia on the palate – lime, mulberries and ripe pear. This is a medium-bodied wine perfect for sipping alone or paired with seafood, chicken or fried foods. While rich on the palate, the low alcohol makes the finish clean and crisp. (50 cases made)

Moretti Prosecco, DOCG Valdobbiadene

This Prosecco was obtained selecting grapes from the high hills of Valdobbiadene, considered the best growing zone for Prosecco, where the yields per acre are very low.  This area gives special aromas to the wine – fragrant apple, wisteria and a hint of rose.  The mellow and harmonious taste makes it perfect as an aperitif.  It is also ideal with fish and cheese, or with other delicate dishes.  Elegant enough for fine celebrations and fun enough for year-round sipping.
