Marchesi di Barolo, a historic winery in the heart of Langhe, offers with authentic passion a large range of Piedmontese excellence wines, both in terms of historic single grape varieties, with its great Barolo and Barbaresco wines above all, and with blend wines appreciated for their harmony and modernity.
This is the case of the Langhe Bianco “Bric Amel”, a balanced harmony of Arneis, Chardonnay and Sauvignon grapes.
Arneis has always had a “rebel nature” in terms of maturation, but here it is sublimated by the presence of Chardonnay and a hint of Sauvignon to make this wine even more international. The nose bouquet recalls the honey, “amel” as it is called in local dialect.
Marchesi di Barolo’s story is therefore a guarantee of oenological wisdom, in fact this white wine combines freshness and elegance, typical notes of the grapes used for this product. The wine offers a wide range of well-balanced aromas, from orange blossom to anise, from licorice to hawthorn, while a gooseberry flavour emerges in the mouth to complete a great aromatic and mineral richness.
This is an intriguing white wine for its transversality and balance, excellent with raw fish and a meat appetizer, or a first course such as pumpkin tortelli or a tagliatella with white truffle.
The Abbona family, after having started the wine business in Barolo since the early 1800s and subsequently founded the “Cav. Felice Abbona & Figli “, bought, in 1929, the cellars that previously belonged to the Marquis of Barolo and his wife, Juliette Colbert of Maulévrier, who later became the Marquise of Barolo. Today the company is led by Anna and Ernesto Abbona, with their children Valentina and Davide, whose mission consists of knowing how to marry “tradition and evolution” by combining ancient winemaking techniques with the ability to present Barolo in a contemporary way according to the most authentic and sought after trends in “Made in Italy” food and winemaking.
