Giuseppe Mascarello Barbera d'Alba Scudetto 2015
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barbera d'Alba|
There's a wild cherry element to this red, along with wild thyme and juniper notes, all backed by firm tannins and succulent acidity. Finishes on the rustic side, with loads of personality. A traditional style. Drink now through 2024. 900 cases made.
Aromas of mature black-skinned fruit, dried herb and a whiff of chopped celery lead the nose. On the concentrated full-bodied palate, pliant tannins cushion fleshy black cherry, ripe plum and a hint of baking spice. Drink through 2019.
