Tasting Notes

This is Barbaresco the way it used to be made — where structure, spices, and minerals are at least as important as fruit. The extra aging in cask and in bottle results in a wine that is released when it’s at least beginning to show the qualities that make a Barbaresco worth drinking: secondary aromas and flavors and the complexity that comes with age. In most vintages, the wine will continue to improve for years, if not decades, but if you drink it upon release, at least you won’t be committing infanticide

The Producer

Scarpa

Few can rival Scarpa for not only the stature of their work, but the dizzying number of famous wines they have made and continue to make since the mid 18th century. Scarpa was among the founders of the appellations of Barbaresco and Barolo. There are not a lot of wines that can match up in quality with the wines from Scarpa. SCARPA was founded in the second half of the eighteenth century by a Venetian migrant, Antonio Scarpa. Still bearing his name, the cellar was handed over to a family from Nizza Monferrato in the late 40's. Mario Pesce, was a young oenologist then who acquired SCARPA after his studies in Burgundy and Alsace and led the cellar throughout its success over the decades. Those are the years when the rules were set: excellent quality, sustainable agriculture and traditional winemaking methods. This is the benchmark to which Scarpa still stands by today.
