    Winemaker Notes

    Golden yellow, sweet aromatic with fine, elegant perlage. Intense and persistent nose with hints of, lime, apricot, orange blossom and passion fruit. Flavor is fresh, elegant, and aromatic like the Moscato grapes it comes from.

    A welcome drink to relax with any time as well as an interesting aperitif paired with tempura, light cheese, spicy foods. Ideal with hazelnut cakes, panettone, fruit salads macaroons and zabaglione.

    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.

    Piedmont, Italy

    Recognized as the source of the best Barbera in all of Italy, Asti is a province (as well as major city) in Piedmont, consisting of a gentle, rolling landscape with vineyards, farmland and forests alternating throughout.

    Barbera d’Asti can be made in an array of styles from relatively straightforward, fruity and ready for consumption early, to the more concentrated, oak aged version with an ability to cellar impressively for 10-15 years and beyond. Some of the very best sites for Barbera in Asti are concentrated in the subzone of Nizza Monferrato. Other red varieties grown here include Freisa, Grignolino and Dolcetto, which can be bottled varietally or blended into Barbera.

    Historically consumers commonly associated the Asti region with Asti Spumante and Moscato d’Asti, both playful, aromatic, sparkling wines made from the Muscat grape. Asti Spumante is less sweet, fully fizzy and more alcoholic (yet still clocking in at only around 9% alcohol) while Moscato d’Asti is sweeter, gently sparkling (“frizzante”) and closer to 5 or 6% alcohol. Each is produced in stainless steel tanks to preserve the fresh and fruity flavors of the grape, often including peach, apricot, lychee and rose petal. Asti is also the spot for the pink-hued Brachetto d'Acqui, a slightly sparkling wine ready to charm with its raspberry and rose flavors and aromas.

    While Muscat comes in a wide range of styles from dry to sweet, still to sparkling and even fortified, it's safe to say it is always alluringly aromatic and delightful. The two most important versions are the noble, Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains, making wines of considerable quality and Muscat of Alexandria, thought to be a progeny of the former. Somm Secret—Pliny the Elder wrote in the 13th century of a sweet, perfumed grape variety so attractive to bees that he referred to it as uva apiana, or “grape of the bees.” Most likely, he was describing Muscat.
