24 BRIX Barbera is crafted from grapes grown in Northern California Shenandoah Valley Amador County AVA. The vineyard is comprised of historic volcanic Sierra Foothills soils – primarily sandy clay loam derived from decomposed granite which adds special characteristics to this fine wine. Light-bodied elegant wine with bright ruby red color, flavors of fresh fruit & soft tannins. Kind to your palate, with a long smooth finish, making it the perfect companion for every meal. This Barbera has been vinted using Old World European winemaking technics, fermented with Mother Nature’s wild yeast which grows in the vineyard naturally. Aged between 24-36 months in season / neutral French oak barrels. We harvest our grapes at or close to, 24 BRIX, the natural sugar level we feel is the optimal ripeness that dramatically influences its quality & flavors.
