Originally from Northern Italy, the Barbera grape produces wines that many consider to be the ultimate ‘food wines.’ These wines are typically bursting with aromas and flavors of red and black fruits, with slightly elevated acidity, moderate tannins and a medium-to-full body that is rarely heavy in feel. Winemakers are finding that Barbera can grow quite well in Lodi, and the warm climate is well suited to the hot weather loving varietal.
Produced from the Leventini and Arrastra vineyards, the Uvaggio 2013 Barbera is rich, full, and deep with toasty oak and loamy earth aromas, and hints of red current and wild cherry. The palate is filled with fruity flavors of berry and plum that linger in the intriguing, complex finish.
