"A light bright expression of Dolcetto, Barbera and Nebbiolo, the Dolcetto shines brightest in its fruit-forward dusty incarnation of wild strawberry and dark cherry, uplifted by the Barbera's tenacious acidity. It changes in the glass to show complexity and verve, with a splash of tannin on the finish."

"The 2017 Red The Bird Flora & Fauna a blend of 39% Barbera, 28.5% Nebbiolo, 26% Dolcetto, 4% Grignolino, and 2.5% Freisa, is absolutely gorgeous and also the most complete wine in this range. Red plum, lavender, spice and new leather all develop in this succulent wine. Open-knit and pliant, the 2017 has quite a bit to offer, especially over the next few years."~Antonio Galloni

"In Italy, the house wine is often light, fresh, aromatic, and firmly structured so as to pair beautifully next to a wide range of foods. That is the inspiration for The Bird. Black cherries, wild strawberries, dried herbs, roses, fresh soil, and a touch of orange peel make up the aromatic profile. The mouth feel is a joyful interplay of brightness with just enough chewy bass notes before the seriousness kicks in with a firm acid and tannin balance on the finish."~Winery Notes
