“BIANCA” Barbera Op Pavese IGT, Castello di Cigognola (2019) - Lombardia
Grape : Barbera.
Oltrepò Pavese. Barbera vinified in white Bianca has conjured a herbal, mineral and lemony wine with a pale yellow hue and delightful floral, spicy and appley nuances. An intriguingly different white Barbera with something of a red wine’s tannins – bright, clean, grippy with a long, mouthwatering finish. Fans of Fiano, Falanghina and Timorasso should pencil it down.
Food pairing: Try with freshwater fish like trout or pike, or with smoked eel.
