The color is a lively and brilliant dark ruby-red. The perfume is fresh and intense with clean scents of wild berries, currants and sour black cherry. A light hint of vanilla and toasted oak. The flavor is warm and robust, full-bodied, pleasant and balanced. This Barbera's sensory attributes make it an outstanding accompaniment for imposing first courses and main-course, meats boiled or roasted.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Barbera del Monferrato Maraia offers a cheerful nod to the local Langhe dialect: "maraia" refers to a young child who is especially vivacious, giggly and lively. The cheerful tone of the wine perfectly embodies its fantasy name. Bright cherry and raspberry give way to mild spice and toasted nut. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2016.
