Le Marie Rouge de Lissart 2020


Only 2 left!

Alcohol: 13%

Grape(s): Barbera, Freisa, Bonarda, Chatus, Neretta

Localization: Piedmont, Italy

Tasting Notes: A beautiful and rare wine from Piedmont's western Alpine edge; this blend weaves together five native varieties; Barbera, Freisa, Bonarda, Chatus, and Neretta. The result is a gorgeously elegant, refined wine with powerful aromas of cherry, strawberry, and earthy spices. 
Fresh fruit with plenty of savory notes to complicate the palate, delicate tannins, suave acidity, and begging for food. 

Food pairing: Drink it young with hearty salami, rather young cheese and fresh vegetables or salad and of course, the typical regional cuisine with meat.

The Domain: Le Marie is a small, family-run farm and winery in Barge, which is in NW Piemonte near the French border. Barge sits at the foot of Monte Viso and Monte Bracco. The vineyards sit between 400-450M, some of which in the 1930s and survived WWII. The winery, like many, is in transition between generations as Valerio’s children, Simona and Daniele, take over. The winery was founded in 2000. They have 9.5ha in 14 plots. We found Le Marie through a conversation about a clone of Malvasia called Malvasia Moscata and the rest, as they say, is history. We have been so happy to find this family winery with so much history and fell in love with the Malvasia Moscata. In 2019 we added several new wines and will continue to add new wines from Le Marie in 2020.
