Marcarini is an Italian wine producer in the north-western wine-producing region of Piedmont. The estate specializes in producing wines from the native grape varieties of this region: Nebbiolo, Dolcetto, Barbera, Arneis and Moscato Bianco.
The Marcarini estate comprises 25 hectares (62 acres) of vineyards spanning both the Langhe and Roero wine districts. One of the most renowned of these is the 4.5-ha (11-acre) Brunate vineyard that was established in the 14th Century. The vineyard is planted to Nebbiolo vines that occupy south- to southwest-facing slopes at altitudes of approximately 1000ft (300m) above sea level.
The grapes cultivated at the Brunate plot act as the source of the estate's single-vineyard Barolo Brunate wine, a traditionally made Barolo wine that spends approximately two years in oak barrel. Marcarini makes two more Barolo wines: another single-vineyard Barolo wine from its 4-ha (10-acre) La Serra vineyard and a Barolo Chinato.
Marcarini's red wine portfolio also includes several Dolcetto d'Alba and Barbera d'Alba wines from its well-established vineyards in La Morra and Neviglie. Indeed, the Boschi di Berri vineyard is over a century old and was planted to Dolcetto in the latter part of the 19th Century. Marcarini also produces a semi-sweet, sparkling Moscato d'Asti, as well as a dry Roero Arneis wine.
