ABOUT THE WINE
In 1991, Peter Weimer gave up corporate life in Switzerland and moved to Piedmont, purchasing Cascina Ebreo. They released their first vintage in 1996, and have since won great acclaim for their unusual, expressive wines.

TASTING NOTES
A bright, extracted style of Barbera, sourced from a small half-hectare plot in the Ravera cru vineyard-area. Wild berries, wood-spice and herbal complexity on the aromas; the palate is beautifully balanced by refreshing acidity. Exceptional wine, with a quality reminiscent of Burgundy Grand Cru.

FOOD PAIRING
Excellent with rich meat dishes, like stews, or meat pies. Game, beef or lamb would all work very well indeed.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
While the producer prefers to avoid the term ‘natural’ for his wines, these are certainly minimal intervention, in both the vineyard and the cellar. Farming is organic, with some biodynamic practices, and the only addition in the cellar is a minimal quantity of sulphur dioxide.
