2015 Estate Barbera
2015 Barbera has tremendous depth and beautiful texture. This is Barbera with an opinion, showing concentrated red and purple fruit flavors, with nuances of rose, cinnamon, anise, cedar, and dill. Drink now with decanting or lay down in your cellar through 2028.
Aged for 24 months in neutral oak.
Barbera epitomizes Italy's love affair with acid-driven wines. Native to Piedmont, this Northern Italian grape has long been know for friendliness at the table. But in recent decades, largely in response to holistic farming practices, Barbera has earned new respect and growing admiration, producing wines that stand among Italy's best.
