Marenco
Albarossa Piemonte DOC
Piemonte
"The Albarossa grape is a cross between Nebbiolo di Dronero and Barbera which was created in 1938 by Professor Dalmasso and is sometimes referred to as Incrocio Dalmasso. Since this varietal was developed in the Strevi area, Marenco was invited to be part of the revival of this unique varietal."
