2021 Seghesio Family Vineyards Barbera
92 points, Owen Bargreen
Barbera, like our founders, is native to the Piedmont region of Northern Italy where it is a beloved table wine, considered essential to have on hand for family meals. We aim to make a Barbera that celebrates the grape's naturally vibrant acidity, bright fruit, and juicy texture that make it endlessly food-friendly and the perfect wine for your table.
Vibrant and aromatic on the nose, this wine features a medley of wild berries and dried herbs. On the palate, the wine is juicy yet richly layered with notes of fresh blackberry cobbler, cardamom spice with just a hint of clay earth. The wine’s fruity acidity and lively finish are lengthened by a light grip of tannins.
