Bargetto la Vita 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Bargetto Winery is dedicated to enriching the quality of life through the enjoyment of wine as it complements meals, contributes to well-being and celebrates life. Bargetto Winery has produced handcrafted wines in the Santa Cruz Mountains since 1933. As we celebrate more than 75 years of fine winemaking, our family invites you to taste our award-winning wines and experience the long tradition and dramatic beauty of this internationally-acclaimed appellation. We welcome you to visit our historic Soquel winery and tasting room in this distinctive region of mountain vineyards and coastal breezes. Or visit our tasting room in Monterey on Cannery Row. Bargetto Winery's Regan Estate Vineyards is nestled in the southern foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains at 500 foot elevation. Its close proximity (7 miles) to the Pacific Ocean, overlooking the Monterey Bay, yields grapes with intense concentration of flavors and good acid structure. Limited yields also contribute to the production of rich wine, capable of extended aging. At our Regan Estate Vineyards, we subscribe to the concept and practice of sustainable winegrowing in which farmers seek to work in harmony with nature. As winegrowers, we strive to have a minimal impact on the natural environment (air, soil, water). We live and work in a beautiful area of the world and want to preserve it for generations after us.

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.
