IULI Umberta is 100% Barbera and the so-called "entry-level" wine at Iuli. Coming from south-facing vineyards planted between 1940 and 1999, it is typically harvested the first week of October. Vinified in concrete with 20 days of maceration. Aged in concrete for 10-11 months, with an additional three months of bottle aging. The wines are Piedmontese to the core, ultra-reflective of the poor, but limestone-rich soils and northerly climate with cool nights. Each wine has a reason for being; each wine has extreme drinkability without losing seriousness or intrigue. Umberta presents with ripe and zesty red and black fruit aromas lead to plush black raspberry, licorice and plum flavors on the palate.
