Winemaker Notes

Red with pink tendencies. Typical smooth scent of rose, with sweet flavor of crushed strawberry. It can be drunk during the different parts of the day. It matches well with desserts, strawberries and it can be drunk as aperitif.

Wine & Spirits
True desert island wine. This finds its richness in perfectly ripe fruit, from red apples to wild raspberries. Balanced and poised, its length feels focused by the interplay of sweetness and bitterness. It’s perfectly refreshing, and almost impossible to put down. You could drink it anytime, with almost anything, from a traditional panna cotta with frutti di bosco to spicy Korean-style barbecue.

Marenco Winery Image
Marenco's history dates back to the beginning of the 1900s -- to grandfather Michele’s dream of planting a vineyard in the heart of the Bagnario Valley, Strevi, an area especially suitable to viticulture. Michele's son, Giuseppe, then began the company’s evolution, gradually acquiring the best land of the Monferrato and choosing the most typical grape varieties to plant.

After the war, Giuseppe built his winery in the center of the village of Strevi; this location allowed him to be near the train station so that he could send his wines directly to his customers.

A man with deep roots, he was able to convey his passion to the entire family; today, his daughters , Michaela (with her husband Dr. Giovanni Costa), Patrizia, and Doretta carry on "the family dream" with Giuseppe's same enthusiasm and dedication. They personally supervise and control every step of the production process, all the way from grape to glass.

Quality, not profit, is the company’s priority. The family makes every decision and choice with the certainty that the excellent flavors of Marenco's corner of Piedmont will be discovered in the final wines.

Set upon a backdrop of the visually stunning Alps, the enchanting and rolling hills of Piedmont are the source of some of the country’s longest-lived and most sought-after red wines. Vineyards cover a great majority of the land area—especially in Barolo—with the most prized sites at the top hilltops or on south-facing slopes where sunlight exposure is maximized. Piedmont has a continental climate with hot, humid summers leading to cold winters and precipitation year-round. The reliable autumnal fog provides a cooling effect, especially beneficial for Nebbiolo, Piedmont’s most prestigious variety.

In fact, Nebbiolo is named exactly for the arrival of this pre-harvest fog (called “nebbia” in Italian), which prolongs cluster hang time and allows full phenolic balance and ripeness. Harvest of Nebbiolo is last among Piedmont's wine varieties, occurring sometime in October. This grape is responsible for the exalted Piedmont wines of Barbaresco and Barolo, known for their ageability, firm tannins and hallmark aromas of tar and roses. Nebbiolo wines, despite their pale hue, pack a pleasing punch of flavor and structure; the best examples can require about a decade’s wait before they become approachable. Barbaresco tends to be more elegant in style while Barolo is more powerful. Across the Tanaro River, the Roero region, and farther north, the regions of Gattinara and Ghemme, also produce excellent quality Nebbiolo.

Easy-going Barbera is the most planted grape in Piedmont, beloved for its trademark high acidity, low tannin and juicy red fruit. Dolcetto, Piedmont’s other important red grape, is usually ready within a couple of years of release.

White wines, while less ubiquitous here, should not be missed. Key Piedmont wine varieties include Arneis, Cortese, Timorasso, Erbaluce and the sweet, charming Muscat, responsible for the brilliantly recognizable, Moscato d'Asti.

Made in a handful of wine regions across the globe, red sparkling wine ranges from delicately sweet to bone dry. While styles vary by region, red sparkling wine production methods are often the decision of the winemaker. For serving, cool red sparkling wine down to about 40F to 50F.
