Winemaker's Notes

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.

Critical Acclaim

"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."
92 Points

"Delicate and balanced, with subtle strawberry and berry character on the nose and palate. Medium-bodied, with bright acidity, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Best after 2011. 1,920 cases made."

Learn About Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo(neh-bee-OH-low) The King of Piedmont Nebbiolo is the key grape in the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. It is not the most planted variety, but it does make the most distinctive and age-worthy wines.
