2018 Barbacan “Jezpemi” ChiavennascaRegular price $105.00
Chiavennasca is a synonym for Nebbiolo, with different parts of Italy using different names. The grapes produced in Lombardy generally are called Chiavennasca and the grapes from Piedmont are called Nebbiolo.
The Barbacan Jezpemi from Lombardy is an elegant, feminine wine, with vibrant fruit and a fine texture. A minimal intervention wine, the family wants to highlight the purity of the fruit and the ripe aromas of red plum, red currants, cranberry, and delicate rose with the fine-grained tannins integrated with the lighter body and a radiant finish.
