Ca dei Maghi, Barabao Bianco, Garganega. 2018
Ca dei Maghi is a small farm in the hills of Valpolicella making very small quantities of the most exquisite wines. Although started in the 1950's it is only since 2011 when Paolo Creazzi took over the reins that this estate has gone from being 'good' to outstanding. Each year he seeks to express classical Valpolicella at its very best while his natural inclination to experiment and try new things is shown in the small range of IGT wines produced.
The drying grapes are harvested by hand the first week of September, the other half at the beginning of October. Fermentation takes place in steel tanks, then the wine rests there for 6 months before bottling.
Brilliant straw sun yellow. Intense, flowered and spicy aroma. Full-bodied, round and lasting flavour. Perfect with mushroom based first dishes and tasty grilled fish. Excellent with Risotto with Tastasal.
