    Winemaker Notes

    This un-oaked Barbera was aged in a polyethylene maturation tank that breathes like a barrel and allows for slow oxidation to soften the tannins. Upfront it has lush cherry fruit, great mouth feel, and a deft touch of acidity on the finish.

    Pair with braised chicken with sweet peppers, pappardelle with lamb ragu, and pizza with tomato and basil.

    Famous even as early as the 1800s for its hefty Zinfandels, the California Shenandoah Valley wine industry naturally halted with Prohibition. But the region gained momentum again in the 1970s with renewed enthusiasm for the potential of its old vines.

    Friendly and approachable, Barbera produces wines in a wide range of styles, from youthful, fresh and fruity to serious, structured and age-worthy. Piedmont is the most famous source of Barbera; those from Asti and Alba garner the most praise. Barbera actually can adapt to many climates and enjoys success in some New World regions. Somm Secret—In the past it wasn’t common or even accepted to age Barbera in oak but today both styles—oaked and unoaked—abound and in fact most Piedmontese producers today produce both styles.
