About the Winery
PunsetPunset 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.
The 2011 Barbaresco Riserva San Cristoforo Campo Quadro is a dark and moderately extracted wine with thick layers of ripe fruit and blackberry confit. You get a noticeable dusting of crushed white pepper at the top of the bouquet. At the back, the wine presents tones of Spanish cedar and smoked bacon fat. The finish is sour and a bit astringent. This unique succession of flavors is indicative of the Punset house style. The wine ages in both barrique and tonneaux for 36 months.
