Unti Vineyards Barbera Dry Creek Valley 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This is very perfumed in a savory way, rich with inky, black fruits with green ivy, african violet accents. Bright, broad, and full or transparent black raspberry fruit on the palate. There’s a lovely bit of black cherry skin here, showing off attractive fruit tannins that add a bit of texture in the mouth, making this just a little chewy. Lovely precision and brightness to the flavors here with a fine, lingering black fruited finish. 89pts

Unti Vineyards is a small, family-owned and operated winery specializing in red varietal wines with vineyard personality. George and his son Mick believe Dry Creek Valley’s climate is ideal for making full-bodied, fruity reds from Zinfandel, Rhone and Italian varietals. The winery, established in 1997, produces small lots of estate grown Zinfandel, Syrah, Grenache, Barbera, Sangiovese, Petite Sirah and a Dry Rose. The winemaking includes artisan methods which enhance and support an ability to make wines with a sense of place. Almost all of the wines, and opinions, are unfiltered. Read less
