Grape Varietal:  Barbera

The 2013 Barbera displays a sultry, rich, dark red hue and bright aromas of cherry and Amador spice. Flavors of dark cherry with toasty oak characteristics lead to sweet, soft tannins that melt away in juicy joy. The Montevina Barbera pairs beautifully with a multitude of cuisines. 13.5% alc.

Sierra Foothills AVA
The Sierra Foothills AVA lies at the base of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California. Wine grapes were introduced to the area in the nineteenth century during the California Gold Rush. Vineyards are located between 1,000-3,000 feet above sea level. Soils are decomposed granite, formed by mountain erosion over centuries, forcing the vines to probe deeply for nutrients and water. Climate is generally cool to moderate heat depending on location. There are many different types of grape varietals grown here but the most common include Zinfandel, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Sangiovese, Syrah, and Petit Sirah.
