PRODUCT OVERVIEW:
Barbera is an incredible grape that should be in every red wine lover's rotation. It makes fruit-driven, juicy wines that are high in acidity yet soft of tannin. This combination makes them food-friendly yet terrific sans cuisine. What's not to love?

Cascina Gilli lies in the Basso Monferrato, on a spine of hilltops with uninterrupted expanses of vineyards in every direction and a terroir that has always produced wines prized for their full body and complex aromas. The estate comprises a historic villa built in the 18th century and 14 surrounding hectares. Gianni Vergnano, who has been at the helm since 1983, has poured into it his efforts and passion, with the result that Cascina Gilli stands as one of Piedmont’s most prestigious and influential wineries. A large proportion of the labor over these years has gone into recovering grape varieties native to these hills (Freisa, Barbera, Bonarda, and Malvasia); this has substantially contributed to the respect Cascina Gilli has won for its stunning portfolio of wines. (importer notes)

Today's wine was fermented and aged in stainless steel so that its vibrant fruit characters would shine brightly on the plate. Shine, they do! Medium-to-full-bodied, it has abundant aromas and flavors of cassis, blackberries, and black raspberries, with accents of wet stone and brambly earth that emerge on the mid-palate. Vibrant acidity is woven throughout the palate, bringing freshness and balance.
