Casa Smith Cervo Barbera 2018

America, Washington
Casa Smith Cervo Barbera

The 2018 vintage was incredible! This outstanding vintage began mild followed by a long and dry ripening season in the fall. This enabled us to hang the fruit to reach optimal ripeness without losing acidity or increasing sugars.

The wines from 2018 are exceptional in many ways, from the great expression of the whites to the beautiful refinement and complexity of the reds. Enjoy!

93 Points, James Suckling
“I like the dark blue fruit here with stone and graphite character.

It’s medium-bodied, tight and fresh. There’s tension throughout this, providing form and vibe. Fresh finish.”


93 Points, Jeb Dunnuck (formerly of Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate) (v2017)
“One of the best expressions of this variety outside of Italy must be the 2017 Barbera Cervo from Charles Smith.

Its vibrant purple/ruby color is followed by a fresh, complex bouquet of blue and black fruits, leafy herbs, vanilla, and spice.

It’s terrific on the palate as well, offering medium to full body, tons of fruit, and remarkable purity.

Drink it any time over the coming 4-5 years.”

Winery Description

A collection of wines produced from classic varietals of Italy. Starting in the north, Barbera from Piedmont. Traveling through Tuscany with Sangiovese and finishing in the land of Primitivo: Puglia.

These are the Washington grown grapes from the single vineyard selections, Cervo, Cinghiale, Porcospino. Made for you by the Famiglia Smith: Charles, Ginevra, Charlotte.

Italian inspired and locally produced, ViNO was created by Charles Smith in 2010 with the inaugural release of a 100% Pinot Grigio. This is in keeping with the vision of producing Italian varietals with the same integrity as they would be produced in Italy. Hand-made wines that are a great value and delicious to drink.
