Winery Tasting Notes: Nose exhibits freshly opened cherry blossoms in spring, light and delicately lifted by oak-imparted vanilla aromas. Bright acidity highlights the entry and finish. Soft tannins in the mid-palate.

Staff Review: JANA KOSMATA – The Seghesio Barbera is not a wine to be taken lightly it will knock your socks off with its boldness and silky finesse. It pours out of your glass onto your tongue with hints of vanilla, cherry and dark fruit. I enjoyed the hints of pepper and it paired well with my lamb stew as well as appetizers of hard cheese and cherry jam. Don’t rush to drink this bottle as it will age nicely in the next year but if you can’t wait…you will only be disappointed when the bottle is empty!
