Balin or “Wandering Dreamer, Full of Ideas” is a wine that favors the adventurous spirit and represents the lovely Barbera grown on the estate. In a region where the Dolcetto grape is king, Claudio Marenco does wonders with the Barbera here. Rich, juicy and built for long lunches over vitello tonnato and agnolotti del plin or whatever hearty dishes call to you.
