Wine Expert Note:

Marziano Abbona Barolo is a renowned Italian red wine hailing from the Piedmont region. It is made from the Nebbiolo grape variety, which is known for producing bold and complex wines. Barolo wines are often referred to as the "King of Wines" due to their exceptional quality and aging potential. Marziano Abbona Barolo typically exhibits a deep ruby red color with garnet reflections, indicating its maturity. On the nose, it offers an enticing bouquet of red fruits such as cherry and raspberry, accompanied by floral notes of rose petals and violets. As the wine opens up, you may also detect hints of licorice, tobacco, and earthy undertones. On the palate, Marziano Abbona Barolo showcases a full-bodied and robust character, with firm tannins that provide structure and longevity. The flavors are rich and complex, featuring ripe red fruits, dried herbs, and spices. With age, the wine develops additional layers of complexity, including leather, truffle, and balsamic notes. This Barolo is best enjoyed after proper decanting to allow the wine to fully express its aromas and flavors. It pairs exceptionally well with hearty dishes such as braised meats, game, and aged cheeses.

Sette Vigne Rosso is a blend of seven different Italian varieties. A de-stemming, the grapes are not crushed, allowing them to remain intact, reducing damage to the skins and optimizing color extraction. Fermentation takes place for 8-10 days aiming to achieve a soft extraction of aromas and gentle tannins. The Corvina grapes follow a different technique called “appassimento” which involves drying grapes in a well aerated loft until they lose up to 50% of their original weight in water. The grapes are crushed and placed in stainless steel tanks for a very slow fermentation. Following vinification, 40% of each of the seven wines is individually placed in second and third passage barriques for 6 months to gain added aromas of sweet spice.
