2022 The Other Wine Co. Barbera
Our second vintage of The Other Wine Co Barbera. Although a new variety for the label, it's a familar friend for our winemaker, Matt Large, who has spent many vintages in Piedmont learning the art of Italian grapes from the likes of Luigi Oddero. Since taking up the post at The Other Wine Co., he's been hunting for local opportunites, and was thrilled to get his hands on this parcel of Barbera.

Sourced from Longview, a pioneering site for the variety. Pulpy and floral, suggesting plenty of whole berries in the mix. Lilac, purple pastille, juniper, lavender and blueberry with a gentle corset of oak, reductive tension and punchy acidity driving versatility and modest length. Fun drinking.
