ABV 13%
FEATURES Low Intervention, Biodynamic, Natural, Vegan-Friendly

The grapes, cultivated according to organic farming methods, are carefully selected and harvested by hand, in perforated crates, and pressed, removing the stalks. In order to obtain a pleasant and harmonious wine, the harvest is delayed as much as possible. Fermentation takes place spontaneously with the help of indigenous yeasts. After soft racking, malolactic fermentation concludes the wine-making process; the wine is aged in cement tanks for a few months, at least until the first warmth, when it is prepared for bottling.

Punset is an innovator when it comes to organic wine. Inheriting the estate in 1982, Marina Marcarino is a fifth generation winemaker.

She transformed all 20 hectares of her land into a fully organic vineyard during a time where major producers of Barolo and Barbaresco were abandoning tradition to compete commercially. Instead of following the trend, she struck out on her own, and made wines that resonated with her past and passions. Known for the very first certified organic Barbaresco of Italy, Marina continues to show the world that you can preserve tradition and think of the future simultaneously.
