Winemaker Notes

The Martinenga Barbaresco, without a doubt, is our most important wine. It is a wine which carries an elegance that conies from its vineyard. On the nose, it offers sensations of sweet tobacco, leather and spice. It is fresh and jammy, rich in structure with good backbone and great harmony. Martinenga is a Barbaresco of great race and breeding. A fine wine with meat, poultry, and aged cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

RP 93
The Wine Advocate

The 2008 Barbaresco Martinenga fleshes out nicely with time in the glass. Sweet dark cherries, licorice, spices and leather are some of the notes that emerge from the glass. I very much like the way the 2008 has developed over the last year. I will not at all be surprised if it continues to improve in bottle as it is fresher and more vibrant than the 2009. The 2008 is a gorgeous wine that captures the very best of the house style. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2028.

Wine & Spirits

Evolving across the palate from earthy notes of autumn leaves and porcini toward the brighter fragrance of roses, this is a sunny Barbaresco held to a tight line of flavor. Red cherries and spice form the core of that flavor, with brisk tannins defining the edges. Open this six to eight years from the vintage to enjoy it at optimal maturity.

Wine Enthusiast

Located directly under the celebrated Rabajà cru, Martinenga is an exceptional, amphitheater-shaped vineyard that revels in sunny exposures and well-draining soils. It’s the perfect spot for the world’s best winemaking and this youthful expressions shows wonderful quality and elegance. The long finish is accented by cassis, cedar and cola-like flavors.
