The Producer

Marcarini, Piedmont

Marcarini, Piedmont

Poderi Marcarini can trace its roots back to in the mid-1800s, when Giuseppe Tarditi established his winery in La Morra, in the heart of the village. Today, since 1990, it is owned and managed by Manuel Marchetti, widower to Giuseppe's great, great, granddaughter, the late Luisa Bava.

Along with their children Francesca, Lisa and Andrea, Manuel oversees the 15ha estate that includes significant holdings in the La Morra vineyards of Berri, La Serra and Brunate. They have some vines in Neviglie, notably Moscato. More recently Luisa oversaw the purchase of 2ha of Arneis vineyards from 7 proprietors in the village of Montaldo in the Roero.

The Grape

Dolcetto

Dolcetto

A native black grape variety of Northern Italy grown almost exclusively in the provinces of Cuneo and Alessandria in Piedmont. It is relatively easy to cultivate, although it is susceptible to fungal diseases. It ripens before Barbera and Nebbiolo and is often grown in high north-facing sites which would be unsuitable for Nebbiolo.

The finest Dolcetto wines come from grapes grown on soils rich with white marls, especially those found on the right bank of the River Tauro. The wines generally are low in tannins and acidity and are usually fruity and fragrant, often with hints of almonds. Most Dolcettos should be drunk within a year or two of the vintage, but the wines from the best producers can last for 5 years and sometimes longer.
