Monterey International Wine Competition awards a silver medal to Nello Olivo's Claret 07. Nello Olivo Wins Silver in Monterey Competition

Nello Olivo Claret 07 wins silver in the Monterey Wine Competition.


Our first win in the 2011 wine competition season is a Silver Medal for our Claret '07. The Monterey International Wine Competition was held March 5 & 6, 2011, at the Salinas Valley Fairgrounds.

We congratulate the two other winners from the El Dorado wine region: Lavacap Winery and True Vine Winery.

Nello Olivo Claret '07 Notes: This wine is made from fruit of the highest quality available in El Dorado region with fresh aromas and a supple and fleshy structure. Cabernet Sauvignon blended with Merlot that has an attractive ruby color with dark and blue fruit nose with some cocoa and bay leaf highlights. The wine has a medium body ripe fruit and concentrated blackberries and cherries with notes of spice. This is a pleasant well balanced wine, dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon.
