Castello di Cigognola “LA MAGA” Barbera 2015


48 in stock


This 100% Barbera red is the Doc Oltrepo’ Pavese appellation from Castello di Cigognola Winery, located in the province of Pavia, in the region of Lombardy in northern Italy.

Unlike many of the other red grapes in the Piedmont,  Barbera has a relatively long hang time on the vine, which imparts a lot of rich, dense flavours to the wine.

This is an excellent Barbera, barrel aged for 12 months.

Impenetrable deep ruby red in colour. Evokes aromas of freshly picked blackberries, blueberry juice, then floral notes of rose, violet as well as cassis, dark cherry, myrtle and liquorice. Warm and silky mouthfeel, it has a fleshy texture and invigorating tannic structure combined with bright acidity which  gives it layers of complexity; the finish is intense and lingering.

As Barbera is known for its acidity, it pairs well with rich fatty foods and red meats.
