Winemaker's Notes:

A full-bodied red wine with intense raspberry, cherry, and anise flavors. Considered one of the most important red wines of the Piedmont region of Italy, Barboursville is the first East coast winery to produce this worthy wine. The perfect companions to a hearty meal such as heavy stews, beef and game. Serve at 68° F.
My Notes:

About Barboursville Vineyards:

The estate winery and vineyards are located on 830 acres of beautiful rolling hills near the Blue Ridge Mountains. We presently have 90 acres of vineyards and continue to expand. Under the direction of Luca Paschina, General Manager and winemaker, Barboursville consistently produces quality wines that have won international recognition. The Zonin family of Italy, brought their strong commitment to produce quality wines to Virginia in 1976. They were the first in the state to plant and successfully establish the revered vitis vinifera vines. The four Zonin brothers, proprietors of the largest Italian privately held wine company, descend from a family that has for centuries been wed to viticulture.
