Knowing that winemakers agree on almost nothing, we have found it interesting over the years how often, when given a choice of wines, they reach for the Barbera. Originally from the northwest regions of Italy, Barbera has found  a new home in California's Amador County.

Winemaker Mark McKenna fermented the fruit in small 1/2-ton vessels, then aged the wine in Hungarian oak, a favorite new tool in his cellar. Smooth and delicious, our 2012 Barbera has aromas of vanilla, bacon, cedar and sweet tart blackberry jam. Fruit-driven flavors follow, made bright with bursts of pomegranate and chocolate. Very well balanced, the juicy finish is long and lingering.

The most food-friendly of red wines, our Barbera pairs well with just about anything…but it absolutely sings for Italian!!
