Seghesio Family Vineyards

2017 Barbera
2017 Barbera

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.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Effusive with notes of cinnamon and macerated strawberries with a touch of baked pie crust and the fragrance of sweet peas. On the palate, the wine blooms with notes of raspberries and spice, vibrant acidity and a bright juicy finish lengthened by a dusting of light tannins.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair with pizza, roast herbed lamb, and roasted root vegetables.

HOME RANCH VINEYARD

Long, warm days aided by the absence of marine influence marks this site. The soils are composed of clay and clay loam with underlying layers of basalt, sandstone and serpentine rock. Vines are challenged by the low nutrient level of the clay and the shallow topsoil, both which force them to produce more concentrated fruit.
