2017 Seghesio Family Vineyards Barbera
90 points, Wine Enthusiast
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.
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.
