Winemaker's Notes

Ruby purple color with intense aromas of concentrated ripe red and black cherries with vanilla and hints of brown spice. With refreshing acidity, rich tannins, and on the fuller-bodied side for Barbera, the single vineyard La Scaronne has finesse, excellent balance, great complexity, integration and a long lingering finish.

Food pairings: Hearty stews, seasoned pasta and poultry with rich sauces, game, roasted red meats and sharp cheeses.

"The 60-year-old Scarrone vineyard produces only 3,400 bottles in a good year, like 2005. It shows its intensity upfront with a deep ruby color and a forward, expressive nose of plum, anise and buttery oak. A light herbal quality lingers in the background, then comes forward on the palate with black fruit, especially black cherry and plum, and a bit of tar. Great structure, with good acidity balancing the medium body. Very dry with appealing minerality on a long finish." 94 Points
