Vineyard Notes
We have two blocks of Barbera here on our estate. One is at the entrance to Bottaia just to your right. It is head trained Block 30, that will be hand picked and the other is just behind our pool, Block 31. Both produce beautiful rich fruit that makes this luscious wine.
Winemaker Notes
“This vibrant red wine has aroma characters of cigar and cedar. On the palate there is cranberry and cherry flavors with hints of brown sugar and baking spice. The bright acidity in this wine will work well with rich meats, mushrooms and pasta.” -Winemaker Brian Hulbert
