Grown in northern Italy for more than 700 years, Barbera has been long celebrated for its role in Barbera d’Alba and Barbera d’Asti. Italian immigrants brought the variety in New World, where today it is often used in blended wines. But when grown here in the rolling hills of Amador, Barbera yields an elegant with layers of fruit and spice, worthy of being featured on its own. We blended Barbera from three of our estate vineyards—Shenandoah, Veauta, Montevina—for this single-varietal bottling.
The overall average skin contact time on this wine is 48 days. The extended maceration portion (93 day skin contact) gave us a beautiful backbone of earthiness and structure for the wine.
