Marenco
Carialoso Monferrato Bianco DOC
Piemonte

This wine is made with 100% Caricalasino, an ancient local variety that Patrizia Marenco rediscovered in Strevi area and reproduced, beginning with 3,000 plants. Also known as Barbassese or white Barbera, the name Caricalasino means “load up the donkey” in Italian, probably due to is highly productive and regular yields. Usually blended with other grapes, Marenco was the first winery in Italy to produce a monovarietal wine. “Carialoso” is the name of the grape in the Piemontese dialect.
