An amazing opportunity - these vines are more than 120 years old (incredible!) and thanks to a special location they are on original rootstock (i.e. not grafted to protect against the Phylloxera louse). This is very rare, and experts argue that when the plant has its original integrity the full depth and nuance of fruit and mineral expression can come through. It's true this wine is forming a reputation of peculiar pedigree and X factor: it doesn't shout but speaks with a captivating depth that seems to communicate something more than just a damned classy, age-worthy, super-serious Barbera. But that's open for debate, and there's only one way to find out what you think.
