This single-vineyard Barbera is from 15 years old vines grown in a slightly lower part of the Serraboella vineyard where the southeastern exposed soils contain more clay than calcareous limestone. It spends 18 months in neutral French oak barrels. Black cherry, black raspberry, mushroom, and earth mingle on the nose with pepper, licorice, smoke, and subtle oak spices. It has great texture and length.
