Although grown in California this wine stays true to its native varital characteristics, dry, tangy, with flavors of plum and ending with solid tannins and nice acidity. As with any Barbera something rustic or anything with tomatoes and herbs would be a perfect pair.


Winemaker's Notes:

The vibrant purple edges surrounding the scarlet color of the wine tells of its youth and brightness before even a swirl. The swirl releases intense and elegant aromas of blackberry preserves on toast and just picked dark plums. A first sip pleases and surprises the palate, with the roundness from nose being overtaken with a bright and lively acidity and red fruit flavors – red raspberry, sour cherry, mulberry and cran-cherry. The layering from the vineyards is evident with textural components of bramble, tea- like soft tannins and a hint of rhubarb mingling with more blackberry, a hint of tar and earthiness and a lifting red plum note on the finish. This wine loves food, so enjoy with anything ‘rustica’ – spaghetti with meatballs, lasagna, risottos and just about anything with tomatoes and herbs! Enjoyable now, but will really improve with aging – we suggest decanting or aerating while the wine is still in its youth.
