Winemaker Chaim Gur-Arieh Notes
Barbera is the most widely planted grape in the Piemonte region of Italy. Alba and Asti are the two growing regions in Piemonte in which the varieties and yields are regulated by the government. Barbera grows very well in the Sierra Foothills yielding grapes that are for the most part fruitier and more aromatic than their Italian counterparts.

Made in our “Submerged Cap” Fermentation Tank and aged in predominantly French oak barrels for ten months, this wine has a definitive Barbera identity. If you like Barbera you will love this wine, and if you are not a Barbera fan, this wine may make you change your mind. The Bing cherry and plum aromas carry into the palate with an explosion of bright fruit tapering off unexpectedly ...more... into a tampered soft finish. This wine shows great acid balance, good structure and complexity and is definitely a food wine.
