A lovely, uncomplicated quaint wine and a great value. Soft tannins (it is matured in stainless steel), medium body and fruit forward this will please any Italian wine lover.

Delightful light style of Barbera that gets its name from the former owner (a woman lawyer) of the single vineyard that supplies the grapes. No oak here - this is all about youthful charm and opulent red fruit. Lovely but for near term consumption. This is a terrific pizza wine

It's a super easy to drink Barbera. Nothing special, and it doesn't suck.

Cherry, cranberry, raspberry, currant, mossy earth and spice. Good structure and soft tannins.

Bright in bramble and mulberry flavors with sweet blueberries on the finish. A "raw" Barbera with super pure fruit and dancing, energetic acidity.
