Moderately dark reddish purple color in the glass. Savory aromas of underbrush and flora compliment the aromas of cherry and strawberry. Both savory and fruity on the palate, with flavors of black cherry, pomegranate, pine needle, and woodland herbs. Shy initially, picking up interest over time in the glass. Finishes on a sweet cherry high note.

Medium-Bodied in style. A dry wine but leaves your taste buds watering thanks to an inherent acidity that proves itself time and time again to be a true gift of Barbera. A vibrant texture and body that lends richness in the mouthfeel and length on the finish.
