2020 Sorella Rogue Valley Barbera
This deep colored Barbera opens with deep aromatics of Black plum, brambles, clay, sweet graham cracker, and a soft oak influence. The palate takes it up a notch and maintains big fruit flavors of blackberry, blueberry, and plum, but adds a sweetness in fig, and floral earthy notes of violets and crushed gravel. The high acid of this wine keeps it feeling playful among such dark and serious flavors and allows for a distinct freshness to shine through. With mild tannins on the finish and such high-spirited acidity this Barbera keeps to tradition as a dynamic food wine that can pair with meats, herbs, earthy elements, rich or fatty elements, and foods with unique spice blends.
