LA VITA (“the life” in Italian) is a unique blend of Dolcetto, Nebbiolo and Refosco, all Santa Cruz Mountains, Regan Estate grown northern Italian red varietals. This wine is a complex wine of elegance and structure.
The wines were fermented in small wood bins, hand-punched during fermentation and pressed with a small basket press. Depending on the vintage, the wines are aged separately in oak barrels for two to two and a half years. Towards the end of cellar aging, the wines are blended to create a unique wine consisting of the three Italian Varietals.
“LA VITA wine is our finest effort in winemaking, from growing the grapes,
to producing the wine, to designing the unique package.” –John Bargetto
