and large, American culture seems to be obsessed with the ‚Äúpresent‚ÄĚ, often
favoring instant gratification over distant pleasure. But there‚Äôs a real beauty
and deeper sense of appreciation to experiencing a wine that has been properly
and this is just the experience! We were recently able

from the acclaimed 1998 Piedmont vintage, and at a price
that is a near give-away!
Martinetti of Torino (pictured), is Italy‚Äôs well-known gourmet and wine
producer from Piedmont
the north-western corner of the Italian Peninsula ‚Äď arguably Italy's finest
wine region. All his wines are characterized by an almost manic-like research

has had an influence on Franco in that he could be defined as an Italian wine
producer with the French wine title,

having addressed the work in the vineyards, especially for what concerns the
pruning and the green harvest, sets the date for the beginning of the harvest,
selects the grapes and oversees the vinification from the barrel to the bottle.

varietal), is responsible for a growing number of
primo wines. They‚Äôre

enjoyable to more palates. This has made Barbera very popular in recent years,
not only among consumers, but to local winemaker‚Äôs like Martinetti as well. The
grape has proven itself to blend superbly well with Cabernet Sauvignon, the
most popular of the French varietals grown on the hills of Monferrato. This
blended masterpiece is a testament to that coupling!

texture and a long, smoky aftertaste. Best after 2000. 1,600 cases made.‚ÄĚ
