TASTING NOTES

Our mission is to produce award winning, authentic Barbera. Our 2017 won Best of Class, Double Gold. This wine is made in the Classy d’Asti style Barbera with piquant, formidable , lively acidity and moderate flavor intensity. Sleek with formidable acidity, supporting a cast of dark plum, black fig, cumin and licorice. A hint of carbonara, and white pepper round out this wine in it’s endless quest to support rich Northern Italian cuisine.


VINEYARD NOTES

Located close to Ukiah, bordering the Redwood Valley AVA, where the Russian River flows the length of the Ukiah Valley and has been its defining landmark for eons. The fertile flood plain of this storied waterway is flanked by miles of benchland, pinole soils. The two topographies create a superb growing region reminiscent of the Medoc. The Pauli family is a multigeneration farmer.


WINEMAKER NOTES

My dedication to making the best Barbera is an honest passion. I use Hungarian oak which helps to balance the acidity. 16 months, 50% New, 40 %1 year, 10% year.
