Cigliuti, Barbera d'Alba 'Campass' 2018

Price
€27

After manual harvest, the grapes ferment on stainless steel. This is followed by aging in new and used French oak barriques. This softens the wine and gives it subtle, creamy vanilla notes. The wine is expressive in the nose with lots of juicy fruit aromas of cherries and plums, kirsch, complemented by vanilla and earthy notes. Soft on the palate with lots of juicy ripe fruit, followed by nicely packed acidity and ripe tannins. The finish is harmonious and long with a nice minerality.

In the south-west of Savoie lies the village of Jongieux, where Antoine and his parents make congenial, unaffected wines from local grape varieties. For whites these are jacquère and roussette and for reds gamay and mondeuse. The vineyards are situated on poor limestone slopes at about 400 meters altitude. The area has even recently been classified as a national heritage site because of its beauty. And for 7th generation Antoine, preserving this landscape is one of the most important aspects and therefore the domaine is certified 'Haute Valeur Environnementale', which means they are super sustainable.
