Vintage 2015:

While Marlborough basked under blue skies throughout summer, the fruit on the vines was developing into something magical. Week after week of warm, dry weather followed on from a cooler than average start to the season. The long warm ripening season ended in a beautiful Indian summer perfect for that grape variety from Northern Italy.

Hans' Comment:

Our Barbera spent 21 days on the skins progressing to wild yeast fermentation before being pressed and transferred into one French barrique for malolactic fermentation. This great "Italian” has been aged on its fine lees for 24 months. No fining and no filtration to maintain its beautiful aromas and flavours. This wine is inspired and in homage to the man who first put Barbera on a pedestal, the late Giacomo Bologna of the Braida estate whose Bricco dell'Uccellone was the first internationally marketed Barbera.

Tasting Notes:

Deep lush notes of juicy plum, strawberry jam and ripe red cherry are complimented by a strong velvet backbone, elegant tannins and smoky finish. This cheeky young wine can be enjoyed now or stored away for years to come. Having been aged in the barrique for such a long time, we recommend decanting to allow our Barbera to breathe.
