Belle Fiore Winery based in Ashland, Ore., produces small lots of wines often with an Italian bent, such as this Montepulciano drawing from estate fruit. A bit of vanilla and blackberries dominate in the nose, backed by rich and plummy flavors with tannin structure akin to fine flannel. This won a gold medal at the sixth annual Cascadia International Wine Competition.
Production: 169 cases
