Description: This cuvée is a tribute to the founding fathers of the Estate. It is made with a parcellary selection of old vines of Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah. The Grenache grapes come from old vines planted on the high quaternary alluvium terraces surrounding the Estate. These terraces are the cradle of the famous terroirs of quartzite pebbles and clay, which give the Barberini cuvee great tannic and aromatic force. This wine is aged for 18 months, spending most of this time in barrels.
