“1212” Barbera Oltrepò Pavese DOC, Castello di Cigognola (2016) - Lombardia
Grape : Barbera.
From the steep slope of the tiny Valtellina, this amazing mountain Nebbiolo represent the variety and the area at the best possible way... Refined 1 year in larghe barrel, it shows elements of berries, blueberries, mint, fresh and crunchy with style and velvety drinkability
Food Pairing : rich dark meats, mushrooms, herbs, herbaceous cheeses like blue cheese, higher tannin foods like root vegetables & braised greens. The idea here is that the bright acidity in the wine will make a rich fatty or high tannin dish complete
