Winemaker's Notes

The grapes for this wine are grown on estate-owned vineyards located on hillsides in the Monferrato and Langhe region of Piemonte. Ruby-red in color with purple highlights. The nose is packed with black fruit, especially blackberries and plums, with slight spicy overtones hinting at black pepper and cinnamon. Sweet, soft tannins come together in a closely-woven texture that merges with the fruit, while a crisp freshness provides a long, tasty finish.

"Displays lovely plummy, chocolaty character. Full and silky smooth, this is packed with flavor. So delicious. Drink now."
-Wine Spectator

"A vibrant and youthful Barbera with fresh plum and cherry flavors, this feels balanced adn cool. An everyday red to enjoy with grilled sausage." 90 Points

This is a big red, jammy with huge body. Fantastic for pairing with any bold dish, lasagna, pasta with Bolognese sauce, roasted pork, you get the picture. Drinks like many wines twice its price.
