Coriole has grown Barbera for over a decade and produces it in the traditional red table wine style of northern Italy. Lifted and aromatic with sour cherry, redcurrant and spice on the nose. The palate is medium bodied with bright fruit, red berries and a hint of earthiness. A soft, elegant style with clean acidity, fine balance and a savoury finish.

No mains water is used; all water on the property is recycled, rain and bore. Viticulture and wine-making processes are achieved with minimal intervention, with a move to organic viticulture in place.

Grapes were hand harvested before de-stemming and crushing, with a portion left as whole berries. Fermentation took place in concrete tanks with a combination of plunging and pumpovers. The wine was then transferred to oak barrels for 12 months’ maturation.
