Winemaker Notes

Another shy '09, slow to reveal its usual malt and brown sugar aromas, but it comes on solid and generous; an entirely satisfying keep-you-company wine you don't have to pay all that geek attention to.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Rich and juicy, sporting flavors of grapefruit, peach and a touch of spice, all buoyed by the vibrant structure. This shows some power for a kabinett and persists on the finish. Drink now through 2022.

The quality of the Wines starts in the vineyard – this is our conviction. This conviction is based on the long experience of our family in the vine refinement business. The selection of the grape varietals, according to the conditions of nature, is essential for the development of the grapes.

Winemaking is our life. Our best finish for a year is – if our work is rewarded by the creation of a new icewine. Each vintage has great challenges for us for every day, which we answer with love and dedication. You can smell and taste this dedication in our wines. Discover the variety of the flavours during a tasting in our vinery. You are welcome!

Best known for sweet, fizzy white wines but also producing some more serious reds, Asti is both a town and a province in the northeastern Italian region of Piedmont. The best vineyard sites are reserved for Barbera, which can produce some of its best and most age-worthy iterations here as Barbera d’Asti. Other red varieties grown here include Freisa, Grignolino, and Dolcetto, which can be bottled varietally or blended into Barbera.

The wines consumers most commonly associate with Asti, however, are Asti (formerly known as Asti Spumante), and Moscato d’Asti. Both are playful, aromatic, and made from the Muscat grape, but Asti is less sweet, fully fizzy, and more alcoholic (yet still clocking in at only around 9% ABV) while Moscato d’Asti is sweeter, gently sparkling (“frizzante”), and closer to 5 or 6% ABV. Each is produced in stainless steel tanks to preserve the fresh and fruity flavors of the grape, which include peach, apricot, lychee, and rose petal.

Friendly, approachable, and full of juicy fruit flavor, Barbera produces wines in a wide range of styles, from young and fruity to serious, spicy, and age-worthy. Piedmont is the most famous source of Barbera, but is also planted in the Italian provinces of Lombardy and Emilia-Romagna. It is one of the most successful and lasting remnants of the Cal-Italian movement, grown throughout the state of California—particularly in the Sierra Foothills—and has also found a foothold in parts of Australia.

In the Glass

Barbera is typically marked by red cherry, raspberry, and blackberry flavors backed by a signature zingy acidity and smooth tannins. More complex examples can include notes of cocoa, savory spice, anise, and nutmeg. In warmer New World climates, Barbera is all about the fruit, sometimes leaning towards over-ripe or dried fruit flavors that can give an impression of sweetness to the wine. Old World Barbera can develop intriguing notes of graphite, smoke, lavender, and violet.

Perfect Pairings

Barbera’s prominent acidity makes it a natural match with tomato-based dishes, therefore making it an easy pairing with a wide array of Italian cuisine. It works just as well with lighter red meat dishes, hamburgers, or barbecue.

Sommelier Secret

Most Barbera wines come from one of two villages in Piemonte—Alba and Asti. Though it is difficult to generalize, typically Barbera d’Asti is softer and more elegant with bright, tangy acidity, while Barbera d’Alba tends to be fuller, rounder, and fleshier.
