Wine Description

(2011 Vintage) Literally campo del rosso, or “the redhead’s field” (in Piedmontese, “camp” means vineyard and “du rouss” means red hair), this wine takes its name from the vineyard’s very first owner: a red-headed man who was so burly he frightened the children.

    (2004 Vintage) "The bulked up, sophisticated, dense ruby/purple-tinged 2004 Barbera d'Asti Camp du Rouss reveals hints of its 20% new French oak aging along with sweet aromas of black cherry jam, licorice, smoke, grilled herbs, and meat juices. Fruit-driven with a subtle touch of spice from the new oak, silky tannin, and decent acidity, it is a full-throttle Barbera to drink over the next 3-4 years."
