Tasting Notes

This vibrant Barbera has lively fruit balanced with inviting aromatic spices, summoning memories of wintertime festivities. Bright blueberry, rich vanilla, allspice, and juniper berry draw you in, while cooling undertones of fresh evergreen pine needles add soft depth to the full bouquet. The palate opens with tart cranberry, pomegranate, and spiced plum, which are layered with earthy notes of cocoa nibs, nutmeg, clove, and gingersnap cookies. The finish is velvety & soft, with refined tannins that make it the perfect pairing to holiday merriment.
