91 POINTS - Wine Spectator
Edoardo Seghesio immigrated to America from the Piedmont region of Italy, home to Barbera. In 1895, he planted his first vineyards to grapes he had come to enjoy in his new country, yet one vineyard was saved for varietals from his homeland. Our historic, proprietary Barbera clones benefit from the warm, dry days in northern Alexander Valley, where the grape’s classic acidity creates a wine with vibrant aromas and a velvety texture. This wine is 100% Barbera from our Estate Home Ranch in Alexander Valley.
Juicy blackberry and spice aromas burst out of the glass,
followed by flavors of black plum, graham cracker and
buttery pastry dough. The wine has a rich texture
supported by a backbone of acidity, making this
delightful to sip on its own or pair with food.
Food Pairing Notes
Tomato-based pastas and meaty ragouts, grilled pork
tenderloin, mushroom risotto, and hard, aged cheeses.
