Italian organic wines: Marchisio’s house nectar stands out among the most awarded labels in the Bio 2024 Guide, which selects the best “green” excellences. Exciting: special mention for Faiv sparkling wine (Arneis, 10 years on yeasts) and Valmaggiore, the first Nebbiolo in history to have been vinified in amphora. And in the very first positions – among the best 500 organic labels in Italy – are also the Arneis tappo raso (in steel and in amphora) along with the Roero Riserva. «We are happy about this», exult the Marchisio family: «For us it’s a great recognition: a reward for the passion and commitment of many years on the front of natural viticulture, which preserves the integrity of the territory and guarantees an excellent and genuine product».

Good, clean and fair: Slow Food’s historic slogan seems to fit perfectly with the style that the Marchisio Family has spontaneously adopted since the beginning. «And the organic specification», confirms agronomist Massimo Pinna, «helps produce wines that are more fragrant, as well as healthier». Further endowment of the family business in Castellinaldo: biodynamic viticulture. Ultra-green practices: horn manure and indigenous yeasts, winter green manures, essential oils (orange and rosemary) instead of copper and sulfur. Result: unmistakable wines, extreme fragrance, great personality. Absolute qualities, now also recognized by the prestigious Organic Guide, the only Italian format that analyzes only wines derived from organic farming.

It’s destined to remain in the history of the Marchisio Family the December 2, 2023 award ceremony in Salerno, in the gotha of organic wine made in Italy. The many certificates of excellence awarded by the Roero winery speak for themselves: there is also room (three “little leaves”) for Castellinaldo Barbera d’Alba 2021, a newly recognized sub-zone – the only one, in Barbera d’Alba – to reward the quality of the traditional red wine of Castellinaldo. Moving up, on the podium (4 “leaflets”), there is the Barbera d’Alba 2021, the Mungalat Langhe Nebbiolo 2021 and the spectacular Faiv Rosè 2013, a classic method (100% Nebbiolo, ten years on the lees) that represents a very original calling card for the winery.

No less than 5, then, are the “little leaves” destined for three wines: the two Roero Arneis satin stopper, the Costa delle Rose 2021 (in amphora) and the almost twin harvested in 2022 (vinified in steel), as well as the sumptuous Francesca Roero Riserva 2020. Finally, the highest possible recognition, the “gold leaf”: for the Marchisio Family’s other super-bullet, the very soft classic method Faiv Brut Blanc De Blancs 2013 (100% Arneis), and for the inimitable Valmaggiore Nebbiolo d’Alba 2017, to which the amphora gives youth and infinite longevity. Awards that speak: they tell the beauty of very different, original and always surprising wines. Native grape varieties that know how to give their best, letting express the uniqueness of the vineyards from which they are born: cultivated with love and, of course, without chemicals.
