About Santa Giustina Barbera
Santa Giustina Barbera is a fresh yet elegant example of the famous Barbera grape but coming from the Emilia-Romagna region. Younger vines are harvested by hand and brought immediately into the cellar for a gentle pressing. About a 20-day fermentation and maceration on the skins takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel, before a couple of months rest prior to bottling. The final result is intense and elegant all at the same time. The nose shows off pretty aromas of violets, red cherries, and fresh blueberries, and is followed by a balanced and full-bodied mouthfeel. Fresh and sapid with a consistent bright fruit flavor, and a light almond finish, this tasty red can be enjoyed with rich meat sauce pastas, and firm cheeses.
About Santa Giustina
Santa Giustina is located in the heart of the Colli Piacentini in the far northwestern corner of Emilia-Romagna. A perfect backdrop to what the estate calls their ‘village’ (a few 1000-year-old buildings, a church from 870, and their wine-making facilities) is a series of perfect hills before the distant Alps. A 100-hectare property at 300m above sea level is theirs, comprised of many different crops, forests, vineyards, and a private game reserve. 30 hectares of organically farmed vineyards produce just over 70,000 bottles a year to create a wide range of wine from the local varieties. All viticultural and vinicultural practices are extremely natural in principle, as they find it completely unnecessary to intervene with the natural magic of the grapes they farm. In addition to their clean and pure winemaking philosophy, due to the entire family’s allergies to sulfur, they choose to use no SO2 whatsoever in the winery, however, they do use sulfites during harvest in the picking bins to prevent early fermentation. Simple and delicious juice is found in each and every bottle, and all are perfect for enjoying at the table.
