Barbera & Champagne, sang Giorgio Gaber. Or, in the words of the Marchisio Family: Barolo & bubbles. Look out for Barolo: Vigna Rionda, Riserva 2016. As for classic method sparkling wines: blanc de blancs and rosé, from Roero Arneis and from Nebbiolo. Both veterans of something like 25 years on the lees. Explosive labels: these are the champions that the Castellinaldo winery is now preparing to uncork at Veronafiere. A debut with a bang, for super-wines destined to remain in history. Giving the 2024 edition of Vinitaly the unmistakable expression of the Langhe and Roero at their maximum power. Pure organic and biodynamic nectar.

«Yes, we are particularly happy to be able to present in Verona our new wines of excellence, the amazing Barolo from Serralunga and the sparkling wines born from a harvest 25 years ago. They testify to our loyalty to the territory and the commitment over time of those who have bet on the unique value of our fabulous hills». Ideas that also resonate in the words of Piedmont Region Agriculture Councillor Marco Protopapa. «With its excellent wines», he says, «Piedmont is a reference point in international markets. It’s strong for the quality and historicity of its productions, but also for the offer of innovative products».

He is echoed by Piedmont Region Vice President Fabio Carosso: «In Verona, Piedmont brings the great quality that is in demand and appreciated by international markets. This is why we continue to defend our certified products and the biodiversity of production». This is confirmed by data released on the eve of Vinitaly 2024. In Piedmont’s large wine district (over 45,000 hectares), almost 90 percent of production is devoted to excellence, Doc and Docg. The area dedicated to organic is growing, now 4,200 hectares (a 300% increase in ten years). Not only that: Piedmont is the second Italian region in terms of wine export value. A 19% growth in the last five years, amounting to 1.2 billion euros in 2023.

Key word: internationality. And the Marchisio Family has all the credentials to answer the call. After their prestigious participation last fall at the Grande Dégustation de Montréal, with their entry into the coveted Canada market, the Marchisio family inaugurated 2024 at Millésime Bio, the Mecca of organic wine (in Montpellier, France). Then in March another milestone: the Prowein in Düsseldorf. And now Vinitaly, the fair of records: more than 4,000 exhibitors and at least 150,000 visitors. A world showcase expressing the entire wine community: producers and importers, distributors, restaurateurs, technicians, journalists and opinion leaders.

Barolo and bubbles, then. But not only: «Roero Arneis, Barbera d’Alba and Nebbiolo d’Alba remain the true DNA of our wine territory of origin, Roero». Native grape varieties: «It’s up to us to make these wines unforgettable, thanks to natural winemaking». Last frontier, the amphora: «It guarantees an unmatched softness, preserving varietal typicality and giving unthinkable evolutions». Among the family jewels made in ceramic vessels are Riesling and Pinot Noir. But the progenitor is a super-red called Valmaggiore: the first Nebbiolo, in the world, to be born in amphora. That is why the one at Vinitaly is yet another consecration of a history that does honor to the best wine-making Piedmont.
