Show 153, January 2, 2016: Winegrower David de Lancellotti, Formaglini Vineyards, Williamette Valley, Oregon

David de LancellottiMaking great wine requires a basic passion for farming. We’ll meet winegrower David de Lancellotti of Formaglini Vineyards.

He produces a very limited supply of hand-farmed Oregon Pinot Noir. David is deeply passionate and faithful to his Italian roots and integrates these Old World learnings and practices throughout his Formaglini Vineyard wine experience.

Following the inaugural and hugely successful 2012 vintage, Formaglini Vineyards of Willamette Valley recently released its 2013 Estate Pinot Noir to great acclaim. Owner and Winegrower, David de Lancellotti, increased production from 100 to 230 cases for 2013 in order to fulfill the growing demand and interest in his Italian influenced wine.

“I am elated at the feedback for our Formaglini wine. While still a young brand, it is so gratifying to know we are creating a respected and sought after wine experience,” shared de Lancellotti.

The other (almost) current release (February)from Formaglini Vineyards is Insieme – 2013 Formaglini Vineyards Cuvee. “This new Formaglini Vineyards wine is aptly named – Insieme – or “together” in Italian. This unique wine is 80 per cent Pinot Noir from our La Quercia block and 20 per cent Lagrein from our Verrazano block. The color is deep from the character of the cult varietal Lagrein and the experience is soulful – a great food wine or a beautiful sipper on its own. We’ve only produced 40 cases of this highly regarded Cuvee.”
