It is a Piedmontese red of good intensity, born in one of the most historic parcels owned by the winery.
On the nose, toasted and spicy aromas mix with touches that recall the typical fruit of the Barbera grape, a prelude to an always linear drink, in which every organoleptic component is in balance, giving rise to a clear flavor. An iconic bottle, a typical example of the Piedmontese Langhe terroir.
This Marchesi di Barolo "Peiragal" is a Barbera d’Alba that comes from vines grown with the guyot system, located in soils characterized by a profile with a good slope. "Peiragal" in Piedmontese dialect really means "steepness", and it is therefore easy to understand how the name of the label is a tribute to the place of origin. The terroir is characterized by a decidedly compact calcareous and clayey soil, where there are also stones of considerable size. This conformation limits the absorption of rainwater, and forces the roots of the vines to go very deep, producing a large number of scattered clusters, that is, with well-spaced grains. The fermentation of the must takes place at a controlled temperature and macerates for 9 days and ages for 12 months in French oak barrels.
At sight it is purplish red. Red fruit, even from the forest, alternates with tertiary sensations on the nose. On the palate it is medium-bodied, with a concentrated and savory sip, sculpted by a well-worked tannin. An elegant and refined bottle, perfect to combine with land products and game.
