Harvest started the 4th week of January 2017 from dryland 12 year old bush vines planted on sandy loam. The Barbera was destemmed and fermented naturally for 2 weeks. It matured in 500L old French oak barrels for 11 months on the fine lees. No fining and only light filtration.
Dark ruby with bright rim in the glass.
Highly aromatic with blue + red fruits and a charming herbal edge.
The palate is full of bright red fruits and crunchy acid (so typical of Barbera). Lovely medium-bodied (12.5% alc) wine that refreshes the palate with a grip of fruit tannin on the finish.
100% Barbera, 12.5% abv, Cork Closure, WO. Darling
