Scudetto Piemonte Barbera 2016


The aromatics are of average intensity with notes of dark cherries, spices, pepper and cloves. The wine as a good mix of the Barbera’s acidity and some integrated tannins, easy drinking, good even if not very complex. To be slightly chilled before serving.


Nez moyennement aromatique de cerises, épices, poivre et clou girofle. Bouche alliant acidité appuyée et tannins intégrés, agréable, sans être très complexe, à boire un peu rafraîchi autour de 17-18 degrés.

Mascarello Freisa Langhe Toetto 2015

This is good. More open and approachable than the Rinaldi fresia from a couple months back. Dark in the glass and a little hot at first. Strawberry perfume, licorice, big tannins. — 6 months ago

Dolcetta d'Alba 2018

This was great. Light, dry little earthy but not overbearing. Had with chicken and it didn’t overpower it. Like. — 4 months ago

Langhe Nebbiolo 2017

Great then odd. Fabulous nebbiolo structure and aromatics for about 30 mins. Then either shut down or just went a bit odd. Will cellar. — 2 months ago

Barolo Nebbiolo 2009

This was muted, and so a disappointment. Leather and dried cherries dominated, acidity was dominant. It complemented steak, but wasn’t a sensation like I had hoped. In a slump?? Should I hold the other I have for several years??? Decanted for 4+ hours, tasted at the start, 2 hours, and 4 hours. — 5 months ago

@Jason Sliwa in my experience, ‘09 is tricky. Ripe vintage so it could peak early but with a producer like Mascarello, I would try to wait.

Villero in particular needs a lot of time. The Perno is prob showing better.
