Earthy on the nose with lots of plum and dark raisin notes. Delicious. Alcohol is balanced.

I would elect for less concentration and more energy. Stewed black cherries, dried cranberries and blood orange. Chocolate, dusty dried herbs.

Una meravigliosa annata per la barbera si conferma anche con mascarello.. Più pronta e meno complessa rispetto a Conterno.

Expressive nose of sweet and sour cherries, blue berries, incense, and dried flower. Round and bright palate with medium to high acidity and soft bittersweet tannins. From a tiny 2/3 of a hectare family holding of the Santo Stefano di Perno vineyard, aged for 18 months in used Slovakia oak barrel, this Barbera shows exceptional freshness and purity of the fruits at this young age, but also has depth and structure to age further.
