2019 L'Asino SantoSans Soufre Barbera
‘The Sainted Ass’ means this wine is only protected by the angels. We see this as a darker, richer style of Barbera in comparison to its sister San Hercurmer. Damson plums and black cherry compliment a olive brininess with hints of marjoram. The weight of this wine is prevalent with a coarse rusticity likely from the light oxidation it saw resting in barrel for 2 years unprotected.
