Quick Facts

Superb Barbera offering juicy fruit and soft tannins. No hard edges whatsoever here, means that Fabrizios vision has succeeded. "It's wine; you drink it", says Fabrizio. Well, yes indeed, trust us; you will.

The Wine’s Story

This is one of our favourite everyday wines, ever! Umberta packs serious Barbera fruitiness with an unmistakably Fabrizio Iuli identity. We’re well aware of the fact that there’s a boatload of well crafted Barbera wines carrying similar price tags, but to us, none comes in terms of complexity and sense of place.

We, as most wine importers, measure any producer by its entry level wine, and Umberta is the reason why we are constantly looking for reasons to revisit this special place. Not only is it the birthplace of Barbara, it’s also the home of Fabrizio Iuli.
