Mission Codename The Centurian
For more than 100 years, the Pellegrini family has been involved in winemaking - first in Italy and now, two generations later, in America. Founded in the 1970s by owner and winemaker John Pellegrini, the winery’s inaugural release was the first vintage of today’s very special wine.
We are very proud to present this heritage-rich 2009 Pellegrini Olivet Lane Russian River Valley Chardonnay, a wine that was declared to be the best white wine of our most recent tasting panel. All of us really loved the balance that we found in the wine. It was simultaneously complex and refreshing, a seeming paradoxical combination for many Chardonnays. This wine manages to be crisp and bright without sacrificing any richness of flavor or mouthfeel.
This wonderful and very highly recommended wine is drinking beautifully now, and we think that it will maintain its appeal for even a few more years. Quantity is very limited, so please accept our apology if you miss out.
