Santa Giustina’s Barbera is a fresh yet elegant example of the famous Barbera grape but coming from the Emilia-Romagna region. Younger vines are harvested by hand and brought immediately into the cellar for a gentle pressing. About a 20-day fermentation and maceration on the skins takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel, before a couple months rest prior to bottling. The final result is intense and elegant all at the same time. The nose shows off pretty aromas of violets, red cherries, and fresh blueberries, and is followed by a balanced and full-bodied mouth feel. Fresh and sapid with a consistent bright fruit flavor, and a light almond finish, this tasty red can be enjoyed with rich meat sauce pastas and firm cheeses.
