Description

94 points Wine Enthusiast
“This vibrant and exuberant Barbera opens with aromas of boysenberry, tart blueberry, fresh violets and roasted herbs. The palate is plump with juicy ripe cherries, wildflowers and a distinct minerality giving the wine a balance that is buoyed by crisp acidity on the finish. A top-notch wine.”

91 points Wine Spectator
"A seductive Barbera, this is silky and charming, featuring violet, blackberry, black currant and mineral aromas and flavors. Easy to enjoy now, yet this should develop over the next 5 years. Drink now through 2028. 3,500 cases made, 500 cases imported."

Vinous Reverie Notes
Luca’s great grandfather went to California in search of his fortune during the Gold Rush and struck it rich! He sent home to Monferrato the money that would purchase the family estate in 1921. For the most part, the family sold grapes or made wine for sale in bulk until in the 1980s when Luca’s grandfather Martino passed away. Luca’s father, like many Italians of his generation, had escaped the countryside to raise his family in Turin. He briefly returned to Monferrato to give farming a go, but it wasn’t to last. After a terrible hail storm in 1985 he threw in the towel—that is to say with the exception of 9 rows of vines that would keep his tax status as a farmer. Fast forward to 2001: Luca Ferraris finishes military service and decides to abandon his home in Turin for the countryside to cultivate a little-known indigenous grape called Ruchè as well as the regional staple, Barbera.
