Francis Coppola Diamond Collection
" The inspiration for the Diamond Collection was a bottle of 1906 Claret we found in the cellar of the Napa Valley property we purchased in 1975. I designed a new label reminiscent of this old bottle and created the Diamond Collection Black Label Claret, which is our company’s most recognized offering. Today, Diamond Collection includes 13 varietals, each identified with a brightly colored label. The quality and authenticity of Diamond Collection is extremely important because we are a family company and our name is on the label. As such, you can trust that we’ll always give you the very best." Francis Ford Coppola

Francis Coppola Diamond Collection 2013 Pinot Grigio

Diamond Collection wines are classic California expressions that offer fruit-forward, multi-dimensional flavor and immediate drinkability. Pinot Grigio is a delicate varietal that can’t withstand too much sun and needs to be picked at precisely the right moment. When it’s just right, it bestows citrus notes, tropical fruit flavors, and pretty floral nuances you don’t find in other white varietals. To capture its personality without altering it with oak, we ferment and finish our Pinot Grigio entirely in stainless steel.

Winemakers Notes

2013 was an excellent vintage across California. There was very little rain that year and temperatures never got excessively warm for any period of time. Plus, we got extra hangtime this season, harvesting a week and a half later than the year before. These conditions produced highly concentrated fruit with intense aromatics and a gentle sweetness. Upon tasting, the body is lean, the mid palate firm with medium length, and the finish is crisp and clean.
