Scarpa Barbera d’Asti Superiore La Bogliona DOCG 2013
La Bogliona is Scarpa’s top wine and probably one of the most important expressions of barbera grapes in Piedmont. It’s longevity easily exceeds 20 years.
Unique with complex, elegant characteristics that will make you do a double-take. Made of grapes specially selected from the oldest part of the vineyard, refined for 30 to 36 months in oak barrels. Price: 48€
Tasting note: Intense aromas with plum, balsamic nuances. Dry and austere in mouth, pleasant acidity, with a mineral finish.
Barbera wine pairing: Eggplant Parmesan Stacks
Scarpa Barbera d’Asti Superiore La Bogliona DOCG 2006
Still skeptical about aging barbera? Give this baby a whirl. When I first got to know Scarpa wines, I remember tasting an older La Bogliona and thought to myself, “I didn’t know a barbera could taste like this.”
Barbera is known for its great acidity, which many people don’t realize is a factor in wine ageabilty. The Bogliona vineyard area is divided into three plots with similar characteristics dominated by half sand, half clay. Soil components of magnesium and white caloric soil with sand give the wine beautiful elegance, saltiness, and minerality. Price: 62€
Tasting note: A beautifully fresh and structured wine with lively acidity, even at more than 15 years old. Fresh red fruits aromatics and on the palate with clear balsamic notes.
Barbera wine pairing: Oven Roasted Pulled Pork with Barbecue Sauce
Antoniolo Gattinara DOCG 2014
When we talk about the nebbiolo of northern Piedmont, we mentally transport to Gattinara.
Gattinara is a territory of volcanic origin at the foot of the Alps where vines were present dating back to Roman times. The complex soil composition is rich in iron minerals, ideal for the cultivation of long aging nebbiolo wines.
Since the early 1950s, the Antoniolo family’s endless passion has yielded memorable wines with traditional style. This Gattinara comes from 40-year-old vineyards and is aged 30 months in large oak barrels. Top wine. Price: 50€
Tasting note: Ripe fruit and spices, fresh tannins and minerals in the mouth.

Valfaccenda Roero DOCG 2017/2018
The first of the three important wines made with nebbiolo grapes, protected under the best denomination, DOCG.
Nebbiolo wines from the Roero are elegant, bursting with aromas of red fruit and rich complexity in the mouth. Valfaccenda is a small cellar that is owned by a young winemaker using organic methods, producing limited quantities with insane quality. About one year in barrel and some months in bottles before release. Perfect in now and in the future! Price: 36€
Tasting note: The mainly sandy soils give the wines freshness and with hints of fruit and spices, perfectly blended in a dry and elegant finish.

Scarpa Barbaresco DOCG Tettineive 2006
Here’s a fun opportunity: get yourself the 2006 Bogliona to compare / contrast the vintage in the Monferatto (Barbera d’Asti) and Barbaresco. The vineyards are roughly 24 miles / 40 km apart, so take on a little microclimate vintage exploration.
In Barbaresco and Barolo, 2006 is one of the best vintages of this century, to-date. This classical wine is only now starting to soften and show its potential. Aged in large barrels for 30 months and then in the bottle. Scarpa is a unique producer in the area who retains quantities of every important vintage to showcase the high quality and longevity of its wines. We got part of its release in 2020 of the 2006 vintage for this offer. Only about 4400 bottles produced, all numbered by hand. Price: 93€
Tasting note: Barbaresco where floral and rose scents predominate, with a balanced, taut, and elegant mouth with silky and sweet tannins for a very deep finish. Masterpiece.

Paitin Barbaresco Riserva DOCG Vecchie Vigne 2011
A family with a deeply rooted connection to Barbaresco; eight generations of history and incredible wines.
Vecchie Vigne is certainly their most important bottle, a masterpiece of patience and dedication. Only made in the best vintages, from the oldest vineyard in the Serraboella grand cru. The vineyards were planted by the family between 1948 and 1953.
Only 3000 bottles of an extraordinary Barbaresco, 36 months of barrel aging, and all the remaining time in the bottle. Price: 99€

Raineri Barolo DOCG 2016
The 2016 vintage is truly epic and this wine is incredible.
The winery was started in 2008 by a couple of guys who had worked at top cellars but wanted to produce their wines. They make fewer bottles of top quality.
This Barolo brings together three small vineyards in Monforte with 24 months in barrel and low yields. Price: 49€
Tasting note: Black fruits with a violet and cherry nose. A big mouth with silky tannins in the finish.

Giovanni Manzone Barolo DOCG Bricat 2008
The 2008 vintage has got to be one of my favorites. The elegance and richness have made it approachable and just gorgeous since its release. And, it just keeps getting better.
The Manzone family has been making their wines since 1925. They own all the vineyards, which are in top areas in the municipality of Monforte. Their incredible Barolo wines are the result of maniacal and uncompromising work in the vineyards and long aging in large barrels.
Bricat is the oldest part of the cru Gramolere, about 60-year-old vines, bottled after 40 months in big barrels, and 30/40 days of skin contact maceration contact. Both a complex and elegant Barolo. Price: 78€
Tasting note: Tannins that envelop the palate with hints of red fruits and chocolate.
Barolo Wine Pairing: Denise’s Spring Stew with Lemon, Mint, and Glazed Carrots
Paolo Manzone Barolo Riserva DOCG Meriame 2013
Paolo Manzone is a producer of clear style and ideas. Through meticulous vineyard and cellar work, he producers top, complex wines.
Meriame is among the most important vineyards in Serralunga d’Alba. Great exposure and 70-year-old vines make this an incredible Riserva. The low per hectare yields are less than half the norm and it ages for 3 years in large cask, 2 years in cement, and 1 year in bottle.
Only about 2000 bottles produce@d only in the best vintage. Price: 70€
