Scarzello is a name synonymous with tradition and elegance in the Piedmont region & this Langhe Nebbiolo exemplifies that perfectly. We’d expect nothing less from a family who’ve been working this iconic vineyard area for nearly 300 years. On the nose there’s red berries, red cherry, red plums, hints of oak and spice. On the palate it’s fresh and dry with lots of red berries, dried cherries, rose petal, cinnamon on a long elegant finish.
Federico Scarzello is the third generation to make wine at his family’s estate in Barolo, taking over in 2001. Since then he has gone from strength to strength, and has been tipped as one of Barolo’s rising stars for his respect for traditional winemaking combined with an utter dedication to quality. Winemaking at Scarzello is very much in the tradtional style using organic methods. Fermentations are long – in some vintages over 50 days on the skins – and the wines are given extended ageing in large old oak casks and bottle. In practice, this means that Scarzello wines are released a year or so later than others. The wines display texture and finesse, and a subtle power that demands attention.
