Fabrizio Iuli is a very kind man. He's also the only winemaker in his Piedmont village, Montaldo di Cerrina, in Northern Monferrato. Since 1998 he's been making delicious, honest, heartfelt wines, focusing on organic farming and saving forgotten native Piedmontese grape varieties. 

Umberta is basically Fabrizio's calling card. Pure Barbera, from a mix of old and young wines (some planted as early as 1940), aged 11 months in large concrete fermenters and intended to be consumed young. This is pizza or pasta night's best friend. Medium-bodied and high-toned, the nose is brilliant - packed with juicy blackberry, red currant and plum. Warming and herbaceous, sage, mint and black pepper, unite with the dark fruit profile and meld into a wonderfully long, licorice tinged finish. Fabrizio, you're a genius.
