Winemaker's Notes

"Very subtle and elegant aromas of licorice, plum and hints of fresh herb. Full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a plummy vanilla aftertaste. Will evolve into a lovely wine. More elegant than the outstanding 1997, but shows more complexity."

The Martinenga Barbaresco, without a doubt, is our most important wine. It is a wine which carries an elegance that comes from its vineyard.

Martinenga is a Barbaresco of great race and breeding. A fine wine with meat, poultry, and aged cheeses.
