Bargetto la Vita 2002
The LA VITA wine is released each year with a brand new label, one that showcases "wine in art." For thousands of years wine has been an integral part of life in western civilization: economically, religiously, and perhaps most importantly, aesthetically. Part of the wonderful legacy of wine is that down through the ages, wine had been proudly portrayed in art, from the Egyptians to present day. Each year, the LA VITA SERIES showcases one masterpiece in which wine has been portrayed. The 2002 LA VITA label features Vendangeuse "The Grape Picker" (oil on canvas) by William Bouguereau (1825-1905).The 2002 LA VITA displays deep ruby color. The expansive bouquet shows an intriguing blend of plums, spice and cedar. The five years of aging delivers a wine with a velvety palate, rich flavors and a delicate oak finish.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

Wine Tasting Notes1999 LA VITA is produced from a unique blend of 50% Dolcetto, 25% Refosco, 19% Nebbiolo and 6% Merlot grown in our estate vineyard in the Santa Cruz Mountains. This handcrafted wine was aged for two and one half years in oak puncheons and then aged for an additional eighteen months in the bottle prior to release. The 1999 growing season yielded just 4,560 bottles. Part of the proceeds from the sale of LA VITA will be contributed to a non-profit organization in Santa Cruz.
