"Peiragal" Barbera d'Alba DOC 2019 - Marchesi di Barolo

Peiragal is an old Piedmontese dialect term, which identifies hills of good slope made up of large formations of very compact calcareous clay soil, with large stones. These conditions limit the absorption of rain and favour a very deep rooting of the vines, in search of humidity. The result is the production of sparse bunches and, therefore, a very structured wine, with sweet tannins, never too evident. This is the case of this Barbera d'Alba DOC proposed by Marchesi di Barolo, matured for a year in small 225-litre French oak barrels. The contribution of the wood adds a light woody note that joins the already wide range of scents and flavours, increasing its complexity. An intense sensation of pleasantness, balance and harmony that accompanies our senses for a long time. Ruby red in colour with bright, intense garnet edges, the bouquet is fresh and lively, with a clear hint of blackcurrants, berries, toasted hazelnuts and vanilla. Immediately pleasant, the taste is elegant, with soft, enveloping tannins. It is a local red wine and goes well with typical Langhe hors d'oeuvres, such as vitello tonnato and the classic vegetable flan. It is also perfect with richly seasoned first courses and meat dishes. It is also good with classic Piedmontese tome cheese and, more generally, with medium-aged hard cheeses.

Barolo, the extraordinary wine that the whole world envies us, was born just a few metres from the company headquarters. The historic cellars of Marchesi di Barolo are in fact located in the centre of Barolo, just a few steps away from the castle that was the home of the last Marchesi Falletti, the first ever to produce the noble red wine of kings. The Abbona family, the current owners of Marchesi di Barolo, ideally continue the work begun by the Fallettis, placing themselves as faithful interpreters of the traditional vines and their places. Never as in this case the saying "combining tradition and innovation" applies. The company works with the main vines of the Langhe, Roero and Monferrato, vinifying the most prestigious crus in purity, refining them and proposing them individually, to better exalt their different expressions. Knowledge of and respect for the different grape varieties and individual terroirs, combined with a vinification process that enhances their strengths. All this is Marchesi di Barolo.

Technical Data Sheet

CHARACTERISTICS
  • TypeStill dry re wine DOC
  • Location Piemont
  • Grapes 100% Barbera
  • Sensations Intense ruby red colour with mauve nuances. Complex bouquet, where the fragrant notes of wild berries combine with hints of cinnamon and vanilla. Full-bodied and elegant, with sweet, enveloping tannins and a long persistent taste.
  • Vinification VINIFICATION: The grapes, harvested exclusively by hand, arrived in the winery intact and were immediately destemmed and gently crushed, to extract only the noblest and most aromatic fractions from the skin and the outer part of the berry. After fermentation with maceration for about 8 days at 28° C, the wine was separated from the marc and racked into specially made vitrified cement vats with cork insulation. Here, malolactic fermentation started spontaneously, ending as early as December. AGING: This wine matured for more than nine months, partly in small 225-litre French oak casks and partly in traditional oak barrels. It then mellowed for a few months in a single tank at cellar temperature, so that its noble components were fully harmonised. A light woody note joins the wide range of aromas and flavours, increasing its complexity in a harmonious sensation of pleasantness. Barbera d'Alba Peiragal reaches maturity 2 years after harvesting and the maturation plateau is between 2 and 5 years.

VINEYARD
  • Terrain Peiragal is an old dialect term that identifies hills of good slope made up of large formations of very compact calcareous clay soil, with large stones. These conditions limit the absorption of rain and favour a very deep rooting of the vines, in search of the humidity that rises, by capillarity, from the deep layers. The result is the production of sparse bunches and, therefore, a very structured wine, with moderate acidity, a well-balanced alcoholic presence and sweet tannins, never too evident.
