Juicy & Fresh

Punset is an innovator when it comes to organic wine. Inheriting the estate in 1982, Marina Marcarino is a fifth generation winemaker, and she took her estate to the future whilst preserving age-old traditions.

The grapes, cultivated according to organic farming methods, are carefully selected and harvested by hand, in perforated crates, and pressed, removing the stalks. In order to obtain a pleasant and harmonious wine, the harvest is delayed as much as possible. Fermentation takes place spontaneously with the help of indigenous yeasts. After soft racking, malolactic fermentation concludes the wine-making process; the wine is aged in cement tanks for a few months, at least until the first warmth, when it is prepared for bottling.

The ruby red color accompanies pleasant aromas of red berry fruit, intense and harmonious. The fruity aroma is also very evident on the palate, characterized by a not very intense acidity and a dry and clean finish. The pleasantness of this product is given by its frankness and typicality, so evident also thanks to the total absence of wood.

Given the high acidity, fatty foods work beautifully with Barbera wine.

About the Winery

Punset

Punset is an innovator when it comes to organic wine. Inheriting the estate in 1982, Marina Marcarino is a fifth generation winemaker, and she took her estate to the future whilst preserving age-old traditions.

She transformed all 20 hectares of her land into a fully organic vineyard during a time where major producers of Barolo and Barbaresco were abandoning tradition to compete commercially. Instead of following the trend, she struck out on her own, and made wines that resonated with her past and passions. Known for the very first certified organic Barbaresco of Italy, Marina continues to show the world that you can preserve tradition and think of the future simultaneously.
