Idlewild Fox Hill Vineyard Barbera
Sonoma County
USA
2013

Barbera is all acid and no tannin... literally, there is next to no tannin in the skins. With this in mind, we used whole clusters to help balance the lively acidity and to add a spicy dimension to the wine. This created a contrast of freshness and hardiness that is enticing. The grapes were left as whole clusters, tread, and left to slowly ferment. Ten months elevage in neutral barrels gave time for integration and settling.

Vinous Review: 92 points 
The 2013 Barbera Fox Hill Vineyard is another terrific wine, with a little more opulence and obvious ripeness than the other wines in the range. The inclusion of 100% whole clusters, unusual with Barbera, adds considerable nuance and structure. Dark cherry, plum, spice and licorice meld into the radiant finish.

-- Antonio Galloni

Barbera is a great pair for pastas with tomato or meat based sauces, game, and hard cheeses.
