COLOR RIOT: VISO Barbera-Nebbiolo
Nature is kind of an OG when it comes to artistic expression. So we chose this bottle of vibrant, perfumed Barbera-Nebbiolo, which is named as an ode to a breathtaking peak in the Cottian Alps. This Super-Piedmontese wine embraces the deep color and everyday drinkability of Barbera, but is bolstered by the high-toned, structured, incredibly aromatic complexity of Nebbiolo.
Piedmont claims a classically continental climate with long hot summers and (in the best vintages) favorable weather deep into fall. The mix in soils brings vivid acidity and seamless finesse to every sip. Hand-harvested, stainless steel fermented, and aged in large format neutral oak barrels.
Upward Projects exclusive collaboration with the Sperone family of Franco Serra. Since the early 20th century, the Sperones put heart and soul into wines that represent the remarkable terroir of the Langhe. Fourth generation brother and sister, Andrea and Francesca, passionately carry that torch forward.
