Filled with zest and juiciness, Barbera satisfies much of northern Italy's thirst for a delicious daily drinker. This wine is sourced from two vineyards - one a 2.5 acre parcel in the hilly new Paso Robles Creston district AVA, and the other in Shandon. The wine was naturally fermented and matured in a 1000 litre Garbellotto cask and some old barrels.
Glowing bright magenta with aromatics of wild strawberries, iron, and oregano. The palate is punchy (in both senses of the word) with vibrant boysenberry and anise, and thai basil followed with earthy mushroom notes and waves of brisk, white-wine like acidity.
It's perfect for pan fried tuna, sashimi and seared summer vegetables.
