Quick Overview

Scarpa makes delicious entry-level Barbera for casual drinking, and then they also produce two magnificent single-vineyard bottlings (differentiated by soil type), which are vinified like the Barolo and Barbaresco. We preferred the La Bogliona, planted on very sandy soils rich in magnesium, a combination yielding exceptional perfumed aromatics. Decades before Giacomo Bologna started making waves in the 1980s for making serious Barbera in a modern style with lots of new barriques, Mario Pesce at Scarpa was paying the same homage to this great grape but in a traditional manner (fermenting in wooden vats, aging in botti for 2-3 years, and then several more in bottle). This is one of the last vintages from that master's hands, and it is a show-stopper.
