UNTI Barbera 2016
"Barbera epitomizes our winemaking quest here at Unti: To produce wines from noble Mediterranean grapes with expressive aromas, flavors, and solid natural acidity for balance. Barbera is by far the most heavily planted grape in Italy's Piemonte region because it performs well in a variety of sites. We first planted a small block of Barbera in 1998, and now have 6 acres under vine. We've learned that when farmed at moderate to low yields, Barbera can render compelling wines here in Dry Creek Valley. Our 2016 Barbera is quite dark with exotic fruit and snappy acidity. The wine was aged ion French oak barrels, 25% new for 12 months.
