Umberta 2021 - The Rebel
The 2021 vintage was unusual. The yeasts did not finish off the sugars during fermentation. During the 2022 harvest Fabrizio Iuli passed the wine over the fresh skins. The wine finally fermented dry and a delicious Barbera "Ripasso" was born.
Fabrizio doesn't consider this Umberta typical and so he calls it RIBELLO. In an act of seriousness he has lowered the price. Umberta is considered one of Italy's best price quality wines and the 2021 has an even lower price! Practically ridiculous.
We at Flemming's are loving the Umberta 2021. It doesn't have the usual innocent fruit character. Instead there is more structure and maybe more character.
