In 1932 Enzo Barbi founded the winery in the tradition of his family. Since the very beginning he searched for quality, and within a short period of time the brand became renowned and well established. The company’s production philosophy leans towards the use of indigenous varietals of central Italy, even though lately, in a couple of wines, two international varietals have been employed. http://www.barbivini.it

40% Grechetto, 40% Chardonnay and 20% Procanico. This is an elegant wine that is nicely structured; fruity with a lengthy, complex finish. It pairs well with light hors-d’oeuvres, shellfish and fish.
45% Trebbiano Toscano , 30% Grechetto, 15% Verdello, 10% Drupeggio and Malvasia. This wine is delicately off-dry with just a touch of residual sugar.
