Marcobarba - Barbabianca, Veneto, Italy (2020)
Biodynamically farmed garganega from Veneto, Italy, a lightly textural vino with zingy lemony aromas and tangerine citrus acidity. There's a rustic vibe here too, like fresh hay, all rounded out with delicious minerality a touch of nuts and oxidative notes. A perfect aperitif wine, pair with seafood or an easy pasta.
Marcobarba began as a social project carried out by Marco and the 'Barbaboyz' (his friends + mentors). The team takes care of small plots of abandoned vines (mostly owned by older locals who wish to see the land revived) between the white sedimentary terrains of the Berici Hills and the dark and volcanic soils of Gambellara.
