Top Barbera Tasted 5/13

17. Giuseppe Mascarello Barbera d'Alba Scudetto (2008)

« Prev 17 of 17
A bit funky on the nose filled with aromas of licorice, brownie, a little toasted nuts and meaty notes as well. Big acids on entry flow into lovely, clear and open fruit that is decisive in a rustic way. The flavors recall the slight oxidative flavors of Barbera from another era, though they do show great depth on the palate. This has near perfect acidity that just piques the palate but is well balanced by the richness of fruit,which gains a little medicinal herb and beef jerky complexity with just a faint wash of fruit tannin helping to support the midpalate and through the finish. 90pts
