Montevina Barbera 2009

External Review by WineExpress.com:

Everyone who tastes this wine absolutely loves it! In Italy, Barbera is considered a very fine grape, worthy of the most careful vinification and French oak barrel aging and boutique pricing. In California it's been a bit of a Rodney Dangerfield wine. Even with the best mature-vines fruit which Montevina has unique access to, temperature controlled fermentation and maturing in French oak AND an incredibly affordable price tag, it just doesn't get the respect it deserves...until you try it. Then, you can't believe how good it is. Bright fruit flavors and zesty acidity make it a great match with food and a wine that can can even take a slight chill to really refresh. Gotta try it!!!

Montevina Winery:
Winemaking is art, science, passion and a healthy dose of voodoo. At Montevina, we got our start in 1970 in the Sierra foothills and released our first wines in 1973. We quickly became well-known for our robust, full-flavored red wines, especially Zinfandel and Barbera, and proceeded to inspire a well-deserved revival of this region’s historic wine industry
