Old vine Barbera with a characteristic flavour of fresh red plum, spices and vanilla.
This signature Barbera wine has received one of the most prestigious awards in Italy, and was included in the 2020 edition of “Italian wine bible” by Gambero Rosso. It comes from the old vine vineyards just outside Calosso in Barbera d’Asti, owned by the Scagliole family. Grown on 50-year old vines with a very low yield, these Barbera grapes have seriously concentrated flavours.
They’re harvested by hand during the last week of September or early October, at the end of a long, languorous ripening season. The wine has excellent ageing potential, and could happily sit in your cellar for more than 10 years. The knight on the bottle is a romantic emblem of a crusader – the protector of the Scagliole family.
Tasting notes: Dry, with high and fresh acidity. Flavours of red cherry and red plum, black pepper spice, cloves and sweet vanilla. Deep ruby colour with various shades of purple.
Awards: “Two Glasses” award, Gambero Rosso (2017 vintage) | James Suckling, 91 points (2014 vintage)
