Vallisto Extremo Barbera

VALL020
This is completely unlike any Italian Barbera you will have tasted, principally because it carries that unmistakable silkiness and heady aromatic profile that so many excellent Salta wines do.

Vallisto Wines

A Vallisto is a person from the valley, fundamentally from Cafayate Valley. And this project is about expressing the virtues of the unique terroirs in and around this beautiful, remote area of Argentina. It is also a rescue mission, giving voice to long-forgotten vineyards and lesser-known grape varieties, pulling together a youthful, dynamic approach to winemaking and the kind of natural resources that take millennia to form. Pancho Lavaque and his team are creating exciting, rare gems, often from very old vines, and they are crafting modern, elegant wines that are light on extraction and big on flavour and complexity. (Ref: Las Bodegas)

Tasting Notes

The nose is an explosion of beautifully pure, sweet aromas of raspberry ripple, blackberries and blueberry pie.

Food Matches

An ideal pairing for pasta dishes, chicken and turkey.
