4.5 STARS 92/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
90 POINTS | Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
Sourced from some of the finest appellations of Northern Italy, Maretti offer classic varietal and regional expression with maximum complexity and drinking pleasure.
This lovely red is a blend of Barbera and Nebbiolo, and combines plush fruit flavours with savoury, meaty characters. With fine, polished tannins, this super approachable wine can be drunk on its own or pairs well with a wide range of foods. Try matched with a rich beef lasagne or pepperoni pizza.
75% Barbera & 25% Nebbiolo.
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "Beautifully fruited and enticing, the bouquet shows sweet cherry, cured meat, floral and green olive characters. The elegantly weighted palate offers juicy fruit notes combined with subtle savoury nuances, well supported by fine polished tannins, finishing long and pleasingly dry."
The winery writes "Fragrant, lifted fruits of the forest overlaid by notes of dried herbs, some leather and aniseed. This is a medium weight wine, very well balanced with plush fruit character, sandy tannins and a lovely fresh clip of acidity delivering excellent Italian drinkability. This is a very approachable wine that will match brilliantly with food as well being great on its own. The perfect pasta or pizza wine."
