Winemaker's Notes:

The 2010 Barbera displays a sultry, rich, dark red hue and bright aromas of cherry and Amador spice. Flavors of dark cherry with toasty oak characteristics lead to sweet, soft tannins that melt away in juicy joy. The Montevina Barbera pairs beautifully with a multitude of cuisines.

Try matching it with a Manchego and fig cheese plate, or an artisan pizza with prosciutto and vodka sauce, topped with fresh basil.

About Montevina Winery:

In the 1850's, Italian immigrants flocked to California's Sierra Nevada to prospect for gold. After the mines ran dry, many of these wine-loving fortune seekers became grape growers and vintners. In 1990, Montevina, the Sierra's flagship winery, began cultivating classic Italian grape varieties along with its hearalded Zinfandel in its 260-acre, organically farmed Amador County estate vineyards.
