The best Italian domestic varietals come from the Sierra Foothills, it’s just a fact. This Barbera from our friends at Terra d’Oro is a classic example. The region produces Barbera that is elegant, with layers of mild fruits, enticing spice, and a lengthy finish.
This is a bold, bright wine that packs plenty of fresh blackberry and black-plum flavors that are held by moderate tannins for a good, appetizing grip. Concentrated fruit flavors and subtle vanilla, nutmeg and clove accents add to its appeal.
