The Barbieri’s are a father and son team who have really made an early impression, given they’ve only had their vines for the past 3-4 years. They are making wine in the simplest possible way - very little intervention, manual harvesting, low yields and minimal sulphur use. Rasteau is fast becoming one of the “to-watch” areas of the Southern Rhone, beginning to match Vacqueyras and Gigondas. This wine shows why: amazing opulence and luxury.
