Barbera Extremo 2021 Vallisto
From grapes grown at 1,900m ASL on the western slope of Cafayate Valley, this is an explosion of beautifully pure, sweet aromas of raspberry ripple, blackberries and blueberry pie. Extensive, gentle pumping over brings very deep colour but the extraction is exceptionally well handled, making for a mid-to-full weight wine possessing a truly silky, sensuous texture, with very fine tannins and a big, open, honest, long finish. 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, and with style and finesse. A find, a revelation, a damn lovely wine.
