BARBERA DEL MONFERRATO
denominazione de origine controllata
Marchesi di Barolo
“Maraia” refers to a group of rowdy kids, or “little rascals,” in Piedmontese dialect, referring to the lively nature of this wine.
This 100% BARBERA is sourced from calcareous-clay soils that are rich in quartz sand, lending the wine a strong, but balanced character and an open bouquet.
Handpicked grapes are brought to the cellar in perfect condition and are softly pressed and de-stalked before vilification. The resulting wine has blackberry fruit aromas with wild berry preserve and vanilla notes. The full-bodied palate is warm yet balanced, with a lively acidity that pairs well with a variety of dishes, from antipasto to pasta with red sauce and high meats, as well as on its own.
