Staff Pick Notes

Since the 1960's the Barberani family has been producing wines in the region of Umbria, gaining more vineyards and raising the bar on quality. This bottle is a calling card for the brothers Bernardo and Nicolo as it shows the commitment to achieving top results! They are also working biodynamically for harmony with nature.
