Maretti Langhe Rosso 2012

Barbera from Italy - Piedmont
Review Date : 23-Oct-2013
70% Barbera and 30% Nebbiolo indigenous yeast fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 8 months in small French oak and large Slavonian oak, blended and given a further 4 months in large oak casks. Very full, near impenetrable black-red colour. This has an aromatic bouquet with volume and intensity of savoury black berry fruits, black ink, revealing lifted black florals intermixed with tar and funky game complexities. Medium-full bodied, fulsome and up-front flavours of black fruits, tar, ink and game show with ripe lusciousness. The fruit is supported by fine-grained supple, tannin textures and balanced acidity providing good tension and freshness. The funky game elements grow to form a complex melange of sweet and savoury flavours that carry through to a lingering finish. This is a fulsome, funky and gamy Barbera and Nebbilo blend with juiciness and good structure. Match with red game meat dishes over the next 5+ years. 17.5-/20 Oct 2013 RRP $29.99
