2019 Barbera d'Alba, Ciabot Camerano, Marcarini, Piedmont, Italy

Description

Marcarini has a vineyard in Neviglie (near Barbaresco), where they grow grapes for their inordinately popular Moscato d’Asti. They also grow Barbera there, which is blended with that grown on warmer sites in La Morra. The latter adds sweetness and viscosity; Neviglie adds a distinctive Lapsang tea hint. There are notes of iodine, cream and sweet cherry perfume. Drink 2021-2027.

About this WINE

Marcarini, Piedmont

Marcarini, Piedmont

World-renowned and defiantly traditional, the 12-hectare Marcarini estate 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, it is run by the ebullient Manuel Marchetti along with his three children Elisa, Chiara and Andrea.

Based in central La Morra, with sweeping views over their vineyards below, this historic 19th-century cantina’s pride and joy is their two cru vineyards: La Serra and Brunate, both of which have featured in the Wine Spectator’s 100 Best Wines in the World. But there is evolution here: all three children are increasingly involved, with Elisa taking on more of the winemaking, while stricter selection in La Serra and Brunate has elevated these iconic wines ever higher.

Barbera

Barbera

Barbera is planted extensively in Piedmont and south-west Lombardy and accounts for over 50% of the wine produced in the region. The majority is sold simply as Barbera del Piemonte, but the best wines are the DOCs, Barbera d'Alba and Barbera d'Asti. It ripens late (after Dolcetto but before Nebbiolo).

The wines are usually ruby red in colour with notably low levels of tannins. They have a pronounced acidity that can be accentuated by overproduction. Barbera wines range from light, tart mouthwashers through to powerful, intensely flavoured wines that require extended cellaring.
