Marco Barba is the name and face behind this project out of the Veneto region in Northern Italy. Before winemaking became a focus, Marco was a carpenter and moved to the Jura mountains in Switzerland where he bred cattle while tending fruits and vegetables. His interest in biodynamic farming grew, ultimately bringing him home. He thus began a new chapter working with friend, Stefano Menti of Menti Wines, and his father in their family business endeavor. Menti Giovanni Farms nurtured his viticultural passion and he started to vinify grapes from vines that he was managing. Today, Marco Barba is a team of three, including his friends, Giulio and Tommaso. They run the winery in a biodynamic-forward manner with respect for nature.
This is a Merlot-based red blend showcasing biodynamic farming and nonintervention winemaking. This wine ferments in cement, then goes on to ages in steel for 12 months. Like the rest of these wines, it is unfiltered and bottled with a small amount of sulfur.
