"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."
Wine Spectator Selection
The Martinenga Barbaresco, without a doubt, is our most important wine. It is a wine which carries an elegance that comes from its vineyard. On the nose, it offers sensations of sweet tobacco, leather and spiciness. It is fresh and jammy, rich in structure with good backbone and great harmony. Martinenga is a Barbaresco of great race and breeding. A fine wine with meat, poultry, and aged cheeses.
