Fabrizio Iuli grew up in a restaurant family. For over 60 years, the Iuli family served award winning Piedmontese cuisine, but it was the local’s demand for a house wine that set Fabrizio on his current path. He planted a few more vineyards and now cultivates Nebbiolo and Pinot, but it is with his Barbera that we can see his personality shine through.

La Rina is a project of reintroduction for the previously abandoned indigenous Piedmontese varietal, Slarina. The grape has, in the past, been overlooked because of its low yields. Fabrizio tells us he has enjoyed working with Slarina, and making a young, fresh and fun wine

Exuberant and fresh red fruits abound on nose and palate. Whimsy but with a good base of fine tannins, making it fun and eminently drinkable
