Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Ruby-red color and full-bodied wine. Floral and fruity aroma of concentrated berries and tar with hints of blackberry. Refreshing acidity, rich and soft tannins finesse, excellent balance, great complexity, integration and a long lingering finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Barbera d'Alba Scarrone is an insanely beautiful, layered Barbera. Silky tannins frame a core of perfumed dark fruit, spices, licorice and minerals. This opulent yet impeccably balanced Scarrone possesses awesome richness and tons of style. Sweet floral notes ring out on the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022."
93 Points

"Deep ruby-red. Deep aromas of black cherry, blackberry, dark chocolate, minerals and flowers. Wonderfully lush, sweet and velvety, conveying an impression of liqueur-like ripeness and an almost roasted suggestion of mocha but with the acidity to give it verve and shape. Huge and full barbera that saturates the mouth with layers of flavor. The most impressive vintage yet for this wine, which is from vines replanted in 1988 and surrounded by Barolo vineyards."
92 Points

"Here's a plush, modern Barbera d’Alba with bright fruit and berry tones followed by softer notes of cinnamon and chocolate. On the whole it is a well-integrated wine, although there is power and density here that suggests a pairing with lasagna or thickly cheesy pasta."
91 Points

"From Vietti's Scaronne Vineyard in Castiglione, this barbera's time in French oak seems to have intensified its purple color while lifting its violet perfume. The wine has a youthful firmness and fineness to its juicy, tart, cherry fruit, ready to enjoy with red-sauced pasta and grilled fennel sausages."
