Rossore, 100% Barbera, was Fabrizio Iuli's first wine. The name refers to the red flush on one's cheeks after drinking it. It comes from different south-facing parcels planted between 1985 and 1990, harvest at the end of September or beginning of October. Vinification is in concrete with 21-28 days of maceration. Aging is in large Slavonian oak cask of 1700L-2500L for 24 months, followed by 6 months of bottle aging. 12,000 bottles made. - Importer Notes
Classic Barbera notes of dark cherries and chocolate, supported by a delicate frame of woody spice, violets and earth and firm but forgiving tannins.
