Notes from Prima Materia:
Grown at 1450’ elevation on red, obsidian-strewn soil resulting from Mt. Konocti’s volcanic upheaval, our Barbera combines 2 clones in a focused package that reflects our region while respecting it’s Italian heritage and the fact that it may be the best all-round food and pleasure wine in the entire universe.
Our best-selling red. Super juicy boysenberry, blackberry and pomegranate layers in a round, medium-weight but very densely fruited package with characteristic good acidity, natural spice elements, and low tannin. Good minerality. No new oak. The bright acidity means it works with so much food, while the low tannin makes it enjoyable on the deck or with simple bites. Barbera is naturally very fruit forward, meaning a smile on all faces.
