Scarzello's Barbera d'Alba comes from grapes grown in Sarmassa and Paiagallo vineyards, located at an altitude between 250 and 400 meters above sea level. The land is characterized by a mainly clayey and calcareous subsoil, where the vines grow according to the principles of organic farming. The must ferments in thermoregulated steel tanks, macerating for a long time on the skins. For the final aging phase the wine is transferred to large oak barrels for 12-18 months. Once bottled, it undergoes another maturation, directly in glass, for another 12 months.
"We are the generations that preceded us, we are our ambitions and our visions, the daily commitment of our work, the continuous desire to improve and operate in a healthy and balanced territory, we are our wines." The words of Federico Scarzello, the third generation of winemakers on the family estate, well describe the vision that animates his daily work.
Five and a half hectares of vineyards and a small family winery located in the charming village of Barolo with the ambition of bringing the excellence and authenticity of that territory into the bottle. Today these principles feed the philosophy that has allowed the company to grow generation after generation: supporting quality rather than taste trends and always safeguarding the elegance and freshness of the wine.
The beauty of this wine is its versatility. It's a wine that is full, but not heavy on the palate and can go with a variety of dishes from vegetarian plates, to light meats, pasta and cheeses.
