Alcohol/vol 14%
Bright garnet red with light orange reflections. On the nose, intense notes of plum and cherry sinuously blend with balsamic nuances of mint, tea leaves, dried flowers and gold-leaf tobacco. The fine and elegant tannic structure, in constant balance with the pulp and the mentholated freshness of the finish, give fullness and harmony to the wine. Ideal with red meat, white meat richly seasoned and mature cheeses; also pairs well with traditional piedmontese first courses like tajarin or agnolotti del plin.

Though firm, there is an elegance to this red, whose flavor profile ranges from strawberry and cherry to tobacco and tea. Taut and linear, with fine balance and a long, red fruit, stone and savory aftertaste. Best from 2025 through 2042. 2,380 cases made, 700 cases imported.

Aromas recalling camphor, woodland berries, mint and French oak waft out of the glass. Reflecting the nose, the elegant, linear palate offers tart cherry, star anise and espresso framed in taut, close-grained tannins.

The 2018 Barbaresco Martinenga is already quite expressive, its very recent bottling notwithstanding. Crushed flowers, mint, star anise, orange peel and spice are all laced together in a Barbaresco that is all about transparency and nuance. The light to medium- bodied style is classic 2018 and classic Martinenga.
