Vineyard & Varietal Information

Long celebrated in the Piedmont region of Northern Italy for its role in Barbera d’Alba and Barbera d’Asti, Barbera has found a home in the rolling foothills of Amador County. By no means new to the state, Barbera is the sixth most planted red grape in California. However, it has only recently graced the stage of varietal bottlings. Amador Barbera produces elegant wine with layers of soft fruit, exotic spice, and voluptuous mouthfeel.

Winemaking

Terra d’Oro Barbera was fermented in stainless steel for a full two weeks, extracting maximum color and flavor. At Terra d’Oro, we believe that barrel aging is essential to making Barbera. For this vintage, French and Hungarian oak barrels were used in a truly international oak program. Aging in small oak barrels gently integrates toasty oak aromas and flavors with the rich, juicy fruit. This process takes time, 15 months in this case, but the seamless transition from fruit to oak is a worthy prize.

Tasting Notes

Terra d’Oro Barbera showcases the refreshing acidity of the grape with inviting aromas of sweet red fruit and fresh toasted bread. Enticing flavors of cherry cola and blueberries coat the palate, and polished tannins boast an elegant, round finish. A perfect complement to savory dishes, Terra d’Oro Barbera pairs particularly well with pork roast or orecchiette bolognese.
