Wine Party Weekend with Barbera 2011

Nello Olivo Barbera 2011

Nello says he once dated a girl named Barbara who had fruity characteristics, was medium-bodied and exhibited less acidity than expected.

What serendipity! This describes Nello's newest vintage of Barbera, too! Though he speaks of it with more passion than he does of his former inamorata. "If you love our previous Barberas," he says, "you're in danger of losing your heart to this one."

This newest incarnation of Barbera does indeed stem from distinguished ancestry. All Nello Olivo Barberas before her have won Gold Medals plus a Platinum, Best of Class, and even Best Red of Show (2013 Pacific Rim International). But all the acclaim means less to Nello than this varietal's status as "most favored of all" among Nello Olivo Wine Club members.

Our 2011 Barbera, in all her well-endowed deliciousness, will be the center of attention this weekend during her coming-out party, Saturday and Sunday, from 11 to 7 in the tasting room.

We hope you're planning to stop by. There will be food ($5 a plate) plus much ado over this fresh-faced wine named Barbera.
