Marenco history dates back to 1925s and grandfather Michele’s dream of making wine from his vineyard in the heart of the Bagnario Valley, Strevi, an area especially suitable to viticulture.

His son Giuseppe then began the Company’s evolution, gradually acquiring the best land of the Monferrato and choosing the most typical grape varieties to plant. In 1956, he built his winery in the center of the village of Strevi, to be near the train station so that he could send his wines directly to his customers. Today his daughters , Michela, with her husband Giovanni Costa, Patrizia, and Doretta carry on “the family dream ” with his same enthusiasm and dedication. They personally supervise and control every step of the production process, all the way from grape to glass.

Marenco’s Brachetto d’Acqui DOCG is dessert in a glass. The grapes are manually selected and harvested at the beginning of September, and then de-stemmed and macerated on the skins for 2 to 3 days in order to extract the desired color; the juice is then clarified and sent to fermentation which takes place in temperature- controlled pressurized tanks; fermentation is interrupted thru filtration when reaching 5.5 % alcohol, and a delicate perlage.

Tasting notes: Delicate ruby red, sweet and sparkling with fine bead, it expresses the elegant aromas of roses and raspberries, typical of the Brachetto grape. Aromatic, delicate and harmonious on the palate. Try it also with Prosciutto crudo, spicy food, sushi. Ideal in the preparation of cocktails and refreshing, thirst-quenching drinks.

Perfect with strawberries, red fruit, fruit salad, all kinds of desserts or just great to relax with anytime.
