This is named after Tony Bondi, Lee Martinelli Sr.’s uncle, who was a large apple rancher in Sonoma County. This property is in the heart of the Russian River Valley, it produces some of Martinelli's most voluptuous, full bodied wines. Uncle Tony loved being a farmer and was quite the entrepreneur by continuing to buy properties and diversify his crops. The soil in Zio Tony Ranch is Goldridge with Clay and Loam. The land was first acquired in 1959, and the current vines were planted in 2000, 2001 and 2006.

Wine AdvocateYouthfully shy, the 2016 Chardonnay Zio Tony Ranch has slatey aromas to begin, with notes of cheese rind, pastry crust, tart green apple and spring blossoms. Medium-bodied and creamy textured, the palate is giving much more, with savory flavor layers and concentrated fruit, finishing long on an uplifted minerally note. 361 cases produced.

VinousThe 2016 Chardonnay Zio Tony Ranch is another very pretty wine in this range. Open-knit and expressive, with good up-front nuance, the 2016 has so much to offer. This is a distinctly mid-weight, creamy style.

Wine SpectatorBig, rich and buttery, with concentrated dried pear, baked apple and dried apricot flavors that are well-structured. Intense toasty notes show on the spicy finish. Drink now through 2023.
