Nicholas Pearce presents the natural wines of Punset, Barbaresco…



Inheriting the Punset estate in 1982, Marina Marcarino is a fifth generation winemaker. She took her estate to the future whilst preserving age-old traditions.
Marina became the pioneer in organic farming when she transformed all 20 hectares of her land into a fully organic vineyard during a time where major producers of Barolo and Barbaresco were abandoning tradition to complete commercially. Instead of following the trend, she struck out on her own, and made wines that resonated with her past and passions.
Known for the very first certified organic Barbaresco of Italy, Marina continues to show the world that you can preserve tradition and think of the future.

Available now:
Blend of Dolcetto (65%), Barbera and Nebbiolo vinified separately. The three varieties come together in an easy drinking wine representing a first charming approach to the region. Neh! is probably the most popular Piemontese slang word and it is used to give a positive emphasis to a conversation.
Fruity and medium bodied wine, with pleasant tannins and low acidity. Perfect to pair almost all food, but it is fabulous with pizza. THE wine for a meal.
