Montevina Barbera 2009

Montevina Barbera 750ml 2009   
Sku: 1582983*

Montevina Barbera is delightfully honest and down-to-earth, with rich, concentrated flavors. Widely planted during the Gold Rush by Italian immigrants, this classic varietal offers luscious fruit flavors and happy acidity making it an extremely versatile, food-friendly wine. Discover our Barbera’s tempting black cherry and toffee aromas, and ripe, blackberry and pomegranate flavors with hints of toasty graham cracker.

Tasting notes
This Barbera boasts lovely bright colors and inviting aromas of cherry and spice. Flavors of cherry cola swirl with warm vanilla and juicy fruit. The wine is bright on the palate and it finishes rich and soft, with lingering fruit and exotic spices. This is a soothing sipper that fits well in almost any culinary occasion.

Wine maker notes
The grapes are hand-picked, destemmed, gently crushed, then sent to stainless steel fermentation tanks. Because of the dependably gentle tannin levels of the varietal, we can use techniques to maximize extraction during fermentation. Once inoculated the tanks undergo daily "drain and return” treatments. The tanks are completely drained of their juice then the juice is returned to the tank over the skins that had formed a cap on the juice. This ensures more juice contact with the skins and feeds the fermentation more oxygen than a regular "pumpover” treatment. The fermentation is extended a full two weeks allowing more time for extraction and intensity of aroma and flavors. The wine was then aged for 12 months using small amounts of French oak to accentuate the sweet cherry cola flavors of the Barbera grape.
