Cantine Volpi is a family winery now in the hands of the fifth generation. Working across a handful of vineyards, they bought the abandoned La Zerba and saved it from ruin.
La Zerba is the result. A barbara that shows a classic interpretation of the grape style, while demonstrating the Zerba terroir. There's a mixture of black and red fruits here, as well as some herbal, spuicy and oak influences as well.
The wine is bold and powerful, but not palate destroying. The joy of Barbara is is low to medium tannins, meaning there's an elegance here too.
