Drink Now-The 2011 Barbera d’Asti Tasmorcan is drop-dead gorgeous. Readers are going to have a hard time finding a better wine for the money. Dark fruit, smoke, licorice and graphite flow through to the sexy, voluptuous finish. Sweet floral notes add a measure of refinement. This delicious, fruit-forward Barbera is an excellent choice for drinking over the next few years. Even better, it is a great value. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2015. Score: 90. —Antonio Galloni, October 2012. @ryebrook

Piedmont, ItalyElio Perrone Tasmorcan Barbera d'Asti is a beautiful expression of the Barbera grape from the appellation of Asti in Piedmont. In the words of Antonio Galloni for Wine Advocate, "Stefano Perrone remains a reference-point producer for Moscato." In 1999 Stefano took on a new challenge with Barbera when he purchased the esteemed Mongovone vineyard in Asti. He replanted half of Mongovone in 2001 and uses the younger vines for Tasmorcan, a beguiling wine capturing the ethereal freshness for which Asti is known. Tasmorcan means badger in Piemontese, a name chosen because the animals kept eating the newly-planted Barbera vines! 100% Barbera, the wine was aged for 6-10 months in large oak barrels. Galloni rated the 2011 vintage of Tasmorcan 90 points, calling it "drop-dead gorgeous. Readers are going to have a hard time finding a better wine for the money." We find it a true red wine gem not to be missed! Elio Perrone Tasmorcan Barbera d'Asti is ruby red in color. It offers a delightful nose of red berries, cherries, violets and French oak. Medium in body with perfect acidity and soft tannins, it offers intense flavors of raspberries, cherries, vanilla and spice. This food-friendly red will drink well for 5-7 years. It is long, ripe and polished on the finish.Enjoy Elio Perrone Tasmorcan Barbera d'Asti with lasagna, veal Milanese and aged cheeses.


Winemaker's Notes:

The name "Tasmorcan" comes from the name of a badger with the face or snout of a dog in the Piemontese dialect. Tas = Tasso (Badger), Mor = Muso o faccia (Muzzle or face), Can = Cane (dog).
