Barbera D’Alba Peiragal 2020 Magnum Marchesi di Barolo Lt 1.5
Peiragal is an old dialect term for hills of good slope consisting of large formations of very compact clayey limestone soil with large stones. These conditions limit the absorption of rainfall and promote very deep rooting of the vines, seeking the moisture that rises, by capillarity, from the deep layers. The result is the production of sparse clusters and, therefore, a very structured wine with moderate acidity, well-balanced alcohol presence and sweet tannins, never too prominent.
Ruby-red color with deep, bright garnet edges. Fresh, lively aroma with distinct hints of black currant, berries, roasted hazelnut and vanilla. Of immediate pleasantness, balance and harmony, the taste is elegant, with enveloping and soft tannins. Pleasing are the spice and woody note that blend perfectly.
Barbera Peiragal is complete on any occasion. It goes very well with typical Langhe appetizers, vitello tonnato and vegetable flan, with first courses with rich condiments and main courses of meat, boiled or roasted, but it also enhances traditional minestrone dishes beyond measure. It is an ideal companion to tomes and moderately aged hard cheeses.
