Maretti Langhe Rosso 2021


From Piedmont, and a terrific vintage there, the wine is a blend of 75% Barbera and 25% Nebbiolo. Fermentation is discretely done in stainless steel, before independent maturation in a mix of small French oak and larger Slavonian oak and then, after blending, a further four months in large oak casks. The colour here is a cherry/crimson. An utterly seductive nose with red fruits, smoked meats, fresh earth, bay leaves, dried herbs, cherries and plums. Soft mouthfilling flavours here with notes of florals and red berries emerging on the palate. Nicely balanced with a lingering finish and soft tannins to drink now and for four to five years. Terrific drinking.
