Barbera Bianca 2019, Castello Cigognola, Lombardia, Italy

Sold out.

green apple, orange peel, mineral

Castello di Cigognolais a 12th Century castle, with 33 hectares of vines on steep slopes. They are into Barbera in a big way and wanted to make a white wine so they gently pressed the red grapes and then immediately remove the skin so there is no contact with the freshly pressed clear juice. Unique white wine from red grapes! This produces a beautiful, delicate white wine with wonderful aromas of green apple and a long tingling finish, but with something of the structure that you might expect from a red. Light and clean with a long finish. Ideal aperitif glass or try with grilled fish.
