Our Barbera is always an elegant contrast to some of our more opulent wines, and consistently demonstrates how well this variety is suited to our Lodi soils. Known for its natural high acidity, our Barbera is the quintessential food wine. It blends ripe red fruit flavors of cranberries and strawberries with earth undertones that balance well with the lively acidity creating a refreshingly delicious wine. 2021 was small harvest. While there was less fruit in the vineyard, the concentration of flavors produced a very intense version with vibrant floral aromas and cranberry fruit balanced by lively acidity. Should develop nicely over the next few years. And as always, it’s my “go to” wine when entertaining – appealing to a wide cross section of people. Plus it goes extremely well with pizza, which seems to be a weekly meal or two around our house.
