Maraia 2011 Barbera del Monferrato, Marchesi di Barolo
#66 on the Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012

Really hard to beat the incredible value this vibrant red delivers. Marchesi di Barolo is a historic producer in Piedmont and their portfolio includes extraordinary single vineyard Barolos, but at the introductory end we find this delicious Barbera thatís easy to love from both taste and budget standpoints. Blended with 10% Dolcetto for added smoothness, this wine is brimming with charming ripe cherry fruit and supple racy tannins. The Wine Spectator liked it so much they put it on their Top 100 list. Scoring it 90 points, they said "A dark, succulent red, exuding black cherry, blackberry and violet aromas and flavors. Pure and focused, with a long aftertaste of sweet fruit, flowers and spice."

              I would love to rate this wine but I ordered 2/27 and have yet to receive. However, this is the 3rd time I have received this email. Any chance the wine is on its way?

                Comments about Maraia 2011 Barbera del Monferrato, Marchesi di Barolo:

                The wine is good, but not excellent. The Wine Spectator gave it a score of 90. I would give it a score around 85, which is consistent with its price. The bouquet is pleasant, but the taste is dominated by tannin. I hope that it improves somewhat with age, but unfortunately my knowledge does not allow me to say how aging will affect it.

                  What an Italian wine should be

                    At this price, Italian wines are usually not exciting, but this was a great find. Not big like a Barolo, but had some character, a feeling that you were drinking something that wasn't ordinary. Might benefit from some aging, but nevertheless great, affordable wine for weekday dinners
