Barbera Bianca Castello di Cigognola, white wine from red grapes, delicate apple, crisp and delicious. The producer Castello di Cigognola 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.

    5.0

    a refreshing, crisp white. very straightforward and clean drinking — perfect for warmer weather, daytime and with light meals.

    4.0

    Echo, the previous review, this is straighforward, nothing overly memorable about it but a capable, refreshing summer selection. Probably at the right price point, it’s a late afternoon garden libation, basically background music in a glass.
