Umberta

Umberta

Umberta is first of all a friend after whom we have named this Barbera. As we consider the Barbera to be a feminine grape, this seemed appropriate!

The wine is fresh, fruity, clean and easy to drink. We firmly believe that the entry level wine of any producer should above all be approachable and eminently drinkable.
