BARBERA is common in the Vipava Valley, although it is a Piedmont Italian variety. It has been present for more than 70 years in the Vipava valley and in the specific climatic conditions here, where it grows very well. It is a bit fresher than other red varieties from our area, which is very good for making a great wine. Its aroma reminds of plums, cherries, roses and other red fruits. The wine unleashes jammy notes that nicely complement vanilla and smoky notes of wood. Tannins are fresh, rich and quickly detected. Wine is macerated for 10–14 days and aged for one year in oak barrels.
Pairing with food: At room temperature, it is best paired by meat dishes.
