Dry red wine, 100% Barbara from a single vineyard
The wine aged 16 months in French oak barrel.
Harvesting: The growing season before the 2016 harvest began with a rainy winter followed by the vines waking to wet soil and excellent growing conditions. Spring started earlier than average in most seasons and as a result, ripening was preceded by most plots. The early spring was characterized by the vigorous growth of the vines, which put a great deal of strain on the vines to meet the growing season's tasks. Throughout the season the weather was mild and without any extreme events. The ripening of the fruit was uniform and moderate. The 2016 vintage was the shortest in all winery years and ended after only 8 weeks. The quality of this vintage stands out as particularly good.
Serving temperature: It is recommended to serve at a temperature of about 18 ° C
