Winemaker’s notes Filled with zest and juiciness, Barbera satisfies much of northern Italy's thirst for a delicious daily drinker. Ours is sourced from two vineyards - one a 2.5-acre parcel in the hilly new Paso Robles Creston district AVA, and the other in Shandon. The wine was naturally fermented and matured in a 1000 liter Garbellotto cask and some old barrels. Webottled early to preserve the zest and zing that we love in Italian Barbera. It's perfect for lighter fare, summer BBQ, and works well slightly chilled.
Tasting notes Glowing bright with aromatics of raspberry and maraschino cherries - almost gamay-like this vintage. The palate tastes more of the earth, with cranberry, boysenberry, and wild anise flavors flow through waves of brisk acidity.
