Based in the sandy hills of Roero, north-west of Alba, Marco Porello and his family have been quietly producing outstanding wines made from the area’s native grape varieties. The Roero region is a veritable kitchen garden famed not only for grape production but also for honey, peaches, pears, asparagus, mushrooms and truffles.
Barbera offers an accessible drinking style. Fresh cherry and other red fruits show intensely on the nose, whilst on the palate it is soft and deliciously juicy. It can be drunk on all occasions due to the easy ripe tannins.
