"The Franscioni family traces their lineage back to the early 1900s, making them one of the historic families in the Santa Lucia Highlands. Gary Franscioni and his wife, Rosella, developed many of the key sites in the appellation, some of them with long-time friend Gary Pisoni. Today, the younger generation is involved, guaranteeing a bright future. The Franscionis draw on several sites for their ROAR wines."
Antonio Galloni

"The 2022 Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands is mainly a blend of Rosella's, Garys', and Sierra Mar vineyards with a bit of Pisoni and Sobranes. Medium ruby-purple in color, it shoots from the glass with gregarious notes of black raspberries, mulberries, and Bing cherries leading to touches of lavender oil, spearmint, and wild thyme. The medium to full-bodied palate is packed with vivacious red and black fruits supported by soft tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and berry-laced."
