Roero, Canada: Marchisio Family labels among the Italian wines featured at the “Grande Dégustation de Montréal”, Oct. 19-21. «We celebrate our entry into the Canadian wine monopoly: after a challenging selection, our Langhe Nebbiolo “Mungalat” and our Barbera d’Alba were chosen». Italian wines in Canada? Well, yes: Piedmont is one of the wine districts in the spotlight, in the 13th edition of the prestigious Montréal show: 250 producers from 25 countries. In addition to Piedmontese varietals, Spanish wines from Rioja, U.S. wines from Oregon, and the best labels from France’s Occitania region will be on tasting.

«We are leaving for the Grand Quai of Montréal’s port, overlooking the St. Lawrence River». Elena and Francesca Marchisio explain: «Mungalat and Barbera are already available to Canadian wine lovers. We will bring other of our excellences: such as Roero Arneis, our Pinot Noir vinified in amphora, Nebbiolo d’Alba Valmaggiore 2017 (also in amphora) and Roero Riserva “Francesca”». A fantastic overview of the best of the estate’s organic and biodynamic production. Genuine wines, without cellar artifices: the most authentic soul is extracted from the varietal, with natural processing. No chemistry, native yeasts: pure expression of terroir.

The Canadians meanwhile have already promoted Nebbiolo and Barbera. Mungalat is made from vines 20-25 years old. Macerated in temperature-controlled steel, it evolves for at least 12 months in large oak barrels. Extreme naturalness, no alteration of the native imprint. Elegant and sincere: a harmonious Nebbiolo, easy to drink. Similar discourse for the Barbera d’Alba: great personality, exuberant richness and fabulous bite. A Barbera with character, fermented in Inox and then aged in steel or large acacia barrels.

At the Marchisio Family they celebrate: «Canada rewards choices like ours: strict respect for the environment. The result: unique wines, for intensity and fidelity to the territory from which they are born». Thanks to the historic gamble of Sergio Marchisio, a pioneer of green in the Roero. The first, among other things, to rediscover the uniqueness of winemaking in ceramics: with exceptional results, starting with Nebbiolo. Logical, then, that his labels are selected among the very few Italian wines destined for the Canadian public.
