Aromas & Flavors
Made from our estate Zinfandel in Dry Creek Valley, Baci is a delicious explosion of dark chocolate, milk chocolate, cocoa, blackberry and boysenberry flavors and aromas. The perfect combination of sweet and robust, Baci has a viscous, rich mid palate and a deliciously lengthy finish.
Baci is sinfully delicious paired with rich, decadent chocolate desserts, as well as vanilla bean ice cream or bread pudding with plum or persimmons. Dark fruit-based tarts or pies and pecan pie also pair nicely.
How It's Made
The grapes for Baci are left on the vine longer in order to achieve a “late harvest” style, shriveling the ultra-ripe berries to 29 to 30 brix. Upon entering the winery, the hand-harvested grapes are destemmed, hand sorted and then whole berries are fermented in tank before pressing and three days of cold soaking. Individual lots are moved to barrels for malolactic fermentation, chocolate flavor added, then barrel aged in French and Hungarian oak for 14 months prior to bottling.
Century old clones of Zinfandel from our Dry Creek Valley estate yield grapes of exceptional aroma, flavor and structure — the ideal choice for Baci.
Serve this delicious, light refreshing dessert after dinner or lunch, with fresh blackberries or raspberries, and with an Italian Biscotti cookie for dipping.
