Amore Blendo 2020 | Broc Cellars
52% Barbera, 24% Sauvignon Blanc, 24% Primitivo
Tasting notes: Bing cherry, vibrant, sunny delight
We picked all three varieties very early in the morning, all on the same day in early September, with a dark orange sky from the fires beginning to blaze all over California. We wanted to make a wine to release in the summer – a chillable easy drinking light red. The Barbera, Sauvignon Blanc and Primitivo fermented together whole cluster, layered alternating each variety until we reached the top of the tank and sealed it. True carbonic fermentation occurred. We pressed the wine to age in a 41 hL concrete tank, one of our sandstone terra cotta jars and 2 neutral French oak barrels. This wine walks the line of being a dark rosé and fresh light red. We recommend chilling it down for warm weather enjoyment.
