2019 Barbanera 'Terre Sicilliane Rosso' Sicily
After two years of negotiations, Barbanera wines have hit our shores. They have never been sold in Australia before and in some instances, only tiny volumes were allocated. Only six outlets in Australia have access to them. These are special wines, made with love and passion.
Luca Maroni, Italy’s most famous wine critic rated them as his winery of the year in 2018 & 2020. He is like a god, in Europe and is the expert people go to when Italian wine is in the spotlight.
This wine is a blend of Shiraz & Cabernet and Luca rated it 98 POINTS. The grapes are picked at full ripeness and layed on mats to intensify (appassimento style). The wine has a vibrant nose of raisins and wood smoke. The palate is ultra juicy, rich and sweet fruited.
