2015 Barbera d'Alba "Rinaldi" (Abbona, Marziano)

Azienda Agricola Marziano Abbona, Barbera d'Asti "Rinaldi", Piemonte, Italy 2015

100% Barbera

BLACKBERRY & MULLBERRY, WILD & WOODSY, INTEGRATED TOAST & SILKY TANNIN

Barbera, among the most widely recognized and popular denizens of Italy’s northwestern vineyards (and, currently, the most quantitatively important), is both a bit of an enigma and a bit of a chameleon. Uncertainty surrounds the grape’s origins, and throughout its Piemontese range, we find a broad spectrum of styles which it can assume. This example from Abbona sets our Barbara scale’s needle dancing erratically. It’s dense, dark, and brooding with black fruit and foresty, rustic charm.

Serving Suggestion: Roast duck legs w/ caraway seeds & red cabbage. Hearty Russian crepes w/ sour cream & sautéed, coarsely-chopped chanterelles w/ garlic.

2012 Barolo (Abbona, Marziano)

Marziano Abbona, Barolo, Piemonte, Italy 2012

100% Nebbiolo

BLACK CHERRY & POMEGRANATE, STAR ANISE PERFUME

Firmly structured yet with sumptuous, ripe fruit, this is sublimely confident Barolo and an exemplary expression of Nebbiolo’s contradictory tendencies toward brightness, enchantingly “pretty” perfume, and rugged earthy mystique. While this wine’s character is inspiringly traditional, Abbona diligently utilizes a wide array of contemporary methods to optimize the generosity of fruit and varietal character in every wine. As if all this wasn’t enough, there’s a lovely bird on the label.

Serving Suggestion: Christmas goose or Peking duck. Rich, creamy cheeses.
