Punset Barbera d'Alba DOC
Punset means "beautiful hill or peak" which describes their lands which has been owned by the Marcarino family since ancient times. In 1964 they turned the land into vineyards and in 1980 Marina Marcarino led the conversion to organic farming. She also prefers biodynamic preparations and sharing the philosophy of agronomic Manasobu Fukuoka, also called “agriculture of not doing”.
Much attention is placed on respect for the environment, both through the limitation of the machining, both through the recovery of the by-products of wine making. Since more than a decade were installed solar panels to provide heating and is on project the installation of a photovoltaic system for providing energy. Even in the cellar, in the winemaking, the philosophy is “let the vineyard speaking”, by omitting the use of selected yeasts, enzymes, so as to allow the fruit to express the terroir of these vineyards. Traditional techniques are those selected: vinification in tanks of cement, in which Marina has always believed, compliance with the phases of the moon for each step of work in the cellar, long aging in wood, mainly in Slavonian oak barrels, followed by long times of rest in bottles. Punset strongly believes in the protection of tradition as historic and national heritage, gaining reassurance amid spokesman every day.
