Unlike many of the other red grapes in the Piedmont, Barbera has a relatively long hang time on the vine and that imparts a lot of rich, dense flavors to the wine. Barbera d’Asti is the most famous DOCG in which the grape grows. This is a warm, hilly region in the Piedmont.
The vinification and aging of all four estates occur at Martinenga and in 2000 the family decided to expand the cellar to facilitate this. In order to minimize the environmental impact on the surrounding hills, the cellar was built entirely underground. In October 2019 the family opened dai Grésy in Langa, a luxury agriturismo and spa located at the Monte Aribaldo estate.
Pairs well with salumi, tajarin, pasta, fresh cheeses, duck, veal, pork, poultry, goose, and other game birds.
