    Winemaker Notes

    A lively and still Scarpa-esque blend of mostly Dolcetto for texture and fruit with a little Ruchè for aromatics. "Velvet and flowers" is how Scarpa describes this wine. It's bone dry, by the way. 90% Dolcetto + 10% Ruchè, two related varieties that play well together.

    Antica Casa Scarpa, Italy
    We sometimes assume that the great, historic producers in Italy are all well-known in the U.S. But ask the old timers: 'yeah, I remember Scarpa....' Antica Casa Vinicola Scarpa has been producing traditional, aristocratic wines in the Monferrato hills of southeast Piemonte for 150 years. They have vineyards, farmed organically, in the Langhe as well as the Monferrato. Mario Pesce, admired by both Giacosa and Gaja, made Scarpa's reputation in the late 20th century. Maria Pier Zola and her family carry on his tradition of aging all the wines for years and sometimes decades before release. Traditional sometimes means 'rustic', but that's not the case here. A very present gusto della casa (house style) produces elegant wines with arrow-like acidity and well-aged tannins. Bottle evolution and vintage characteristics emerge instead of pointillist fruit and minerals.

    Attracting the most glory, prestige and fame to the Piedmont region, Nebbiolo in all of its expressions—Barolo, Barbaresco, Roero, Ghemme and Gattinara—creates a complex wine, truly unique for its delicate qualities combined with strength and a great potential to improve over time.

    But Nebbiolo isn’t all there is to red wine from Piedmont! Barbera is the most planted variety and historically most popular as a dependable, food-friendly, everyday wine.

    Beyond these two, a surprising number of red varieties call Piedmont their home. Worth a try include Dolcetto for its bold concentration and aromas of spice cake. Other grapes to investigate include Freisa, Croatina, Brachetto, Grignolino and Pelaverga.
