“1212” Barbera Oltrepò Pavese DOC, Castello di Cigognola (2016) - Lombardia
Grape : Barbera.
The Castello di Cigognola company is located on the hills between Piedmont and Emilia, in what was once called ‘Old Piedmont’. The wines made from this superb terroir are very fresh and refined and this Barbera is a great example of what is possible with this grape.
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
