The Ponzi vineyards are located in the Chehalem Mountains of the Willamette Valley in one of the newest sub-AVA's of Laurelwood District. The Ponzi family has owned and maintained this property since the late 1960's and is currently run by Ana Maria Ponzi with Luisa Ponzi as their winemaker. Together they petitioned to designate the Laurelwood District as its own AVA because of its unique Laurelwood soil; composed of basalt base with ice age windblown sedimentary soils.
This is only the 3rd vintage that the Ardanza has been classified as "Reserva Especial" during the long history of the La Rioja Alta winery. The other two vintages were 1964 and 1973. That being said, this cuvee lives up to expectations and is a testament to a fantastic vintage. Ardanza is full-bodied, sweet, tangy and savory, with strawberry/plum fruit, mushroom, and notes of herbs from the generous helping of garnacha in the blend. On the palate it is well structured with gorgeous velvety tannins and excellent balance and length. As the great wines of Rioja do, this will surely cellar very well and would stand up to just about any food that you could throw at it. I specifically would pair this with game-birds with a sweet and savory sauce. cb

2011 Barolo is an amazingly elegant and – sorry, but I can’t think of a more accurate way to say it – classy wine. Deep, restrained, sophisticated (sorry, again!); it’s very savory and subtle, not showing a lot of fruit. There’s no heat, the tannins are beautifully ripe and velvety, and it has great length. Absolutely classic fine wine – amazing wine, actually. Jamie Wolff
“Pie” means foot — or root. “Rupestris” refers to American rootstock; these vines were planted more than 40 years ago.
