WSR June – California Italian Wines

As Summer comes upon us our group attends a very nice tasting at Holly’s house with some of Richards favorite wine verities.  What was interesting about this is that they all were produced by one Winery and really covered a small segment of Italian wine varieties  but those that can grow in the soils of California.  There were interesting ones and good ones in the group.  I do have to say that the Barbera were delightful and went well with the layered lasagna!
