Another beautiful wine from the legendary Lino Maga. His Montebuono contains the same grapes as his flagship Barbacarlo (Croatina, Uva Rara and Ughetta) and adds a little Barbera to the mix. The site is a little less steep than that of Barbacarlo and so we find a wine a little more delicate. This remains impossibly youthful, with aromas of fried fruits, herbs and spice that really jump out of the glass.

Barbacarlo

Lino Mago is one of the unsung heroes of wine in Italy. His family have been making wine in the hills Oltrepò Pavese in Lombardia since the 1880’s and the way they go about their work has remained the same ever since. To taste these wines is to taste a piece of history.
