The Barbera Montezavo Oltrepò Pavese Riserva DOC by Isimbarda captivates from the first glance with its deep ruby red color. On the nose, it stands out for its great complexity, ranging from red berry fruit to violet, up to spicy hints of elegant refinement. The structure is marked, and the persistence on the palate is remarkable. Produced in proprietary vineyards in the Municipality of Mornico Losana, at an altitude of 250 meters, this wine is the result of a 15-day maceration in steel tanks and aging in new French oak tonneaux for 14 months, followed by another 6 months in the bottle. Ideal for pairings with game and hard-aged cheeses, this wine is an excellent choice for an elegant dinner or a special occasion.
