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 spice. It is fresh and jammy, rich in structure with good backbone and great harmony.
Martinenga is a Barbaresco is a fine wine with meat, poultry, and aged cheeses.
"The 2006 Barbaresco Martinenga is utterly gorgeous in this vintage. The wine reveals the tell-tale mid-weight style of the house, but there is also surprising muscle behind the fruit. Sweet red cherries, roses, licorice, berries and spices are some of the notes that linger on the pure, sensual finish. Today the tannins come across as a touch potent, so a few years of bottle age seems wise. This is as graceful and elegant as Barbaresco gets. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024."
The Wine Advocate
