Bruna Grimaldi Barbera Superiore Scassa

2018 Barbera d'Alba DOC Superiore 750ml

Description

Dolcetto has always been part of the history of Langa and is the everyday-drinking wine: our grandparents always say that “a meal cannot be considered a proper one without a glass of Dolcetto”. The name takes its origin from the characteristics of the grape variety which is known for its sweet and delicious flavour, not from the characteristics of the wine that is always dry.Dolcetto is purple-colored with pronounced vinous to fruity aromas of red fruits, blueberry, raspberry. It is dry on the palate and shows a good structure, softness and freshness with a finely tannic and unique finish.Barbera Superiore Scassa is a style of Grimaldi's own to interpret. Selected vineyards, low yields and oak ageing are the key factors that contribute to make this wine up to the standards of the Superior designation. Intense aromas of red fruits, sour cherries with graphite and menthol notes on the nose. On the palate it is rich and concentrated, mineral and fresh. This freshness gives it longevity and makes it a versatile wine in terms of food pairing.

Features

  • 100% Barbera
  • 91 POINTS, Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate
    Named after the difficulties of ripping up the land to ready it for agriculture (to "scassare" in Italian), the Bruna Grimaldi 2018 Barbera d'Alba Superiore Scassa is a dark and concentrated expression with sweet cherry liqueur and blackberry confit. The wine is soft and yielding with a thick textural approach that wraps nicely over the palate. The wine shows so much fruit weight and density, you might try a contrasting food pairing with spicy, smoky or barbecued flavors, including some pasta or pie crust to help soak up the 15% alcohol.
