Dominic Scotto emigrated to America from the island of Iscia in the bay of Naples in 1903 and worked as a ship's caulker, making wine in his spare time. The family wine-making tradition was passed from generation to generation and today it is Anthony Scotto, Dominic's grandson, who now runs a full-time wine business. It is based in Lodi, some 60 miles east of San Francisco. This Old Vine Zinfandel comes from vines planted by the early Italian immigrants and shows the variety's true character: It is a big, bold and uncompromising wine. A ripe, powerful wine from low-yielding vines.

Media attention has also been growing over this wine, with it appearing on Jancis Robinson’s Purple Pages website and inspiring this comment from Simon Woods: “Why aren’t there more wines like this from California?… It’s hard to think of a wine business that wouldn’t benefit from such a wine.”
