2022 'Barbarossa' Merlot, Cabernet, & Raboso

Regular price ₱1,150.00

Made to brighten up any day, Marco Barba's Barbarossa is a lighthearted red wine with a shabbily handsome Italian profile.

Despite being made from Merlot, Cabernet, Raboso and other grape varietals known for making dark red wines, the Barbarossa makes for a light and easy drinking experience. It's perfect chilled with its fresh aromas, approachable flavor, low tannins, light body, and refreshing acidity. And while it's laid-back, it brings a lot of nuance and character to keep things interesting.

Easy Drinking

Style: Still Red

Region: Veneto, Italy

Viticulture: Merlot, Cabernet, Raboso, and other varietals. From an exclusively biodynamic viticulture, interventions reduced to the minimum and always in harmony with the vineyard. Barbarossa is made with a mix of red-grape varieties, both native of the territory and international ones. Some of them are known, others not so much.

Winemaking: Co-fermented wine with indigenous yeasts, in cement tanks; aged for 12 months in steel tanks and bottled unfiltered with a small addition of sulfur.

Marco Barba began his wine journey through animal husbandry and biodynamic learnings in the northern reaches of the great winemaking region of Jura, France. He was called back to his hometown in Italy by Giovanni Menti, a friend and a pioneer in biodynamic wine, to tend to very old vineyards left behind by widows from the war.

The 'Barbaboyz', Marco and his two close friends, have taken it upon themselves to lovingly care for the health of the vines without chemicals, mechanized handling, or forced irrigation, and in true biodynamic fashion to care for the symbiotic plants and animals. Their philosophy is that when nature is loved, truly and not fattened for slaughter, then nature will provide fruit with character and authenticity that people have earned the privilege of enjoying.

Caring for the bees in neighboring vineyards, Marco has said something that we think speaks of his philosophy and passion:

'I do not care if there will be honey left for me, my family, or my friends; The most important thing is that the bees are okay and they have enough nourishment to take on the winter, and then if some honey is left over, we will have the privilege of enjoying it.'
