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.
"Bright, dark red. Fresh, floral aromas of cherry and wild herbs, with complementary oak tones. Dense, rich and deep, combining outstanding sweetness of fruit with harmonious acidity and serious power and structure. This will age well on its sheer density. Luca Currado picked these barbera vines early, "with very thick, ripe skins" and a crop level of under 25 hectoliters per hectare."
International Wine Cellar
"A powerful, brooding Barbera, evoking black currant, blackberry and coffee notes. This is broad-shouldered and high-octane, with well-integrated tannins and a touch of licorice on the finish. Best from 2013 through 2016."
