About This Wine:
The Golden State’s wine heritage is rooted in the great Italian immigrants who brought with them not only their spirit of living life to the fullest, but also the first cuttings that would establish the “Cal-Ital” wine industry.
At Portalupi, “Cal-Ital” is defined as a way of living — respecting old traditions and merging them into our contemporary lives. It’s about embracing what you have, being happy, and being proud of who you are… all of which is enhanced by having a good glass of wine in hand.
Portalupi’s Barbera grapes come from the acclaimed Shake Ridge Vineyard in California’s Sierra Foothills. The 2017 vintage is a chameleon-like wine with ever-changing layers of fruits, spices and herbs. It’s a multi-faceted, Old World-style wine that’s finely tuned with supporting wood tones that make it a true candidate for long-term aging… and a true treasure.
