A deep ruby red wine from Italy, Carlo Giacosa‘s Lina, from a fourth generation winery that blends traditional methods with new techniques, offers deep, jammy scents and flavors. Well structured, the lightness of Barbera is tempered. This is a full bodied wine with good tannins and a warm and lingering finish.

The Barbera is aged in small French oak barrels for the first 10 months, followed by two months in stainless steel containers. Sulfites are reduced to one-third the legal limit.

Spicy and bright, it tells the story of a family’s love for its lands. For more information, contact Dos Familias Wine Imports.
