Producer: G.D. Vajra (Non-Certified Organically Grown Grapes)
Region: Italy-Rinascimento Wine Co. (Nor-Cal only.)
Wine: 2011 Barbera Superiore

The grapes for this wine come from 15-40 year old vines in the famous Barolo vineyard Bricco delle Viole and from 12 year old vines from the Bric Bertone vineyard in Sinio.  A true terroir wine, the mineral composition of the Barolo vineyard provides the needed structure and grit while the Alba vineyard provides the fruit balance to the mix.  It is a textbook example of ageworthy Barbera.

The color is deep violet with a nose of red berries, plums, black cherries, classic Barbera dried herb notes, flowers, tar and minerals.  Very deeply concentrated, the structure is more than coated by the sweet fruit coating.  The finish is long, complex and very intriguing, bringing you back for a second taste...
