2018 Portalupi Arrossire Di Barbera Sparkling Wine Mendocino County
Portalupi is always on the cutting edge with Barbera with a goal of being the premiere Barbera producer in America. We believe the Barbera grape has the perfect acidity and flavor profile to make a traditional and elegant Methode Champenoise Sparkling and in short order, we have achieved our vision. An absolutely exquisite expression of a blush wine in color, aromatics and flavors. An absolute industry first in regards to style, elegance and sophistication.
After fermentation the wine is bottled and the riddling process begins.For nearly a year the wine is carefully monitored until we feel all aspects are perfect. This wine is then dosaged and after a little rest in the bottle released.
Tasting notes: Great strawberry, cream aromas, many and tight small bubbles and a heady creamy mousse.
