Winemaker Notes

Deep ruby red in color with aromas of spice, blackberry, dried cherry and violets. The wine is soft and round, yet is well structured with a persistent finish. The lower levels of sulfites allow the aromas and flavors of this wine to shine.

Pair with fennel-spiced sausages, duck confit or aged cheeses.

Blend: 50% Albarossa, 30% Barbera and 20% Merlot

RP 88
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2007 Monferrato Rosso is a hugely delicious, value-priced wine bursting with fruit. Crushed flowers, licorice and spices add considerable complexity to the dark fruit. I especially like the juiciness here. This is another uncomplicated wine that convinces for the sheer pleasure it provides. It is equally soothing on the bank account. The Rosso is 50% Albarossa, 30% Barbera and 20% Merlot.

Tenuta la Marchesa, Piedmont, Italy
Image of winery
The estate, located in the most important area of Gavi, covers 190 acres, of which 145 are planted with Cortese, Chardonnay, Merlot, Barbera and Albarossa vines. A new winery equipped with the latest in modern winemaking equipment blends perfectly with the architecture of the old villa. The old villa cellar has also been maintained in the historic home, preserving a history of winemaking tradition. The La Marchesa wines are greatly influenced by two important elements: the nature of the soil (a clay-limestone mix) and the Mediterranean climate, tempered by breezes that pass the Apennine mountains.

Piedmont

A prestigious and distinctive region for red wines in northwestern Italy, Piedmont is responsible for some of the country’s longest-lived and most sought-after wines. Set with a backdrop of the visually stunning Alps, its most prized vines are planted at higher altitudes on the warmer, south-facing slopes where sunlight exposure is maximized. The climate is continental, with cold winters and hot, muggy summers. Despite the rain shadow effect of the Alps, precipitation takes place year-round, and a cooling fog provides moisture that aids in the complete phenolic ripening of its grapes.

Easy-going Barbera is the most planted grape in Piedmont, beloved for its trademark high acidity, low tannin, and juicy red fruit. However, the most prized variety is Nebbiolo, named for the region’s omnipresent fog (“nebbia” in Italian). This grape is responsible for the exalted wines of Barbaresco and Barolo, known for their ageability, firm tannins and hallmark aromas of tar and roses. Nebbiolo wines, despite their pale hue, pack a pleasing punch of flavor and structure, and the best examples can require about a decade’s wait before they become approachable. Barbaresco tends to be more elegant in style while Barolo is more powerful. Across the Tanaro River in Roero and the farther north regions of Gattinara and Ghemme, provide more affordable and imminently drinkable Nebbiolo.

Dolcetto is Piedmont’s other important red grape, ready to drink within a couple of years of release. White wines are less important here but can be high in quality, and include Arneis, Gavi, Timorasso and the sweet, charming Moscato d'Asti made from Muscat.

Other Red Blends

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
