Maretti Langhe Rosso is produced by Fontana Fredda in Barolo, with the intention of showing that the region can turn out good wines that don't have to cost the earth.
Made from 70% Barbera and 30% Nebbiolo and fermented using only wild yeast, the wine is aged for 8 months in small French and large Slovenian oak.
It is then blended and given a further 4 months in large oak casks. This is a great value example of the Piedmontese style.
The nose is fruit-driven and vibrant with aromas of fresh red fruits, dried herbs and a hint of aniseed. The palate is driven by a core of supple raspberry and dark plum flavours courtesy of the Barbera while the Nebbiolo brings fine tannins, appealing aromatics and length.
