Marco “Barba”, grew up in Madonna di Lonigo, near Vicenza. He is the heart (and the face, if you check the label closely) of the Marcobarba project. Marco took an interest in organic and biodynamic farming from an early age. “Marcobarba” started as a social project carried on by Marco and friends he met working with another Venetian natural winemaker, Stefano Menti. Today the “Barbaboyz” take care of small plots of abandoned vineyards owned by some elderly widows, between the white sedimentary terrains of the Berici Hills and the dark and volcanic soils of Gambellara. From the grapes they grow with biodynamic practices, Marco produces about 40,000 bottles a year: a fizzy white wine, a still white and a red wine. Marco and the Barbaboyz’ winemaking and bottling is done in the Menti Giovanni Winery.
Fruity, floral and fresh! This white wine is a joy to smell and taste. Aromas and flavours of tree fruit (apple and pear), orange blossom, elderflower and some citrus notes. The palate is zippy and fresh with a pleasing textural roundness mid palate and a lively fruit driven finish. Enjoy this as an aperitif, with mild curries, Thai food, cold salads.
Made via biodynamic and low intervention viticulture and winemaking. It is predominantly Garganega with some Glera and other local varietals. The wine ferments with indigenous yeasts in concrete tanks; ages for 9 months in the same fermentation containers, and it is bottled unfiltered with a small addition of sulfur.
