Marcarini Barbera d’Alba “Ciabot Camerano” DOC
100% Barbera. Marcarini Barbera d’Alba “Ciabot Camerano” DOC is deep garnet in color with thick, warm reflections going on ruby. On the nose the bouquet is broad, characteristic, complex and very persistent. On the palate the wine is austere and warm flavor with remarkable robustness, balanced and harmonious turns sweet with a pleasant sapidity.
“Classic is a keyword in the Marcarini philosophy. Ideally poised between traditional and modern, the wines are characterized by both a voluptuous, embracing style and the superb longevity and blockbuster structure of Piedmont’s best.”
