Barbera d’Alba ‘Scudetto’ is a magnificent example of the Barbera grape from Mascarello. It is an intense and fruity wine with sappy red fruit, inky notes, liquorice and a wonderful underlying acidity. Pretty herb notes appear on the palate which is long and memorable.

Giuseppe Mascarello is one of Barolo’s greatest names. The family have been producing wine in the Langhe since 1881 and today the estate is run by Mauro, aided by his son Guiseppe and daughter, Elena. The wine making process remains very traditional with hard and meticulous work being put into the vineyard. Manual weeding, crop thinning, and a very late harvest all ensure that the grapes are of the highest quality before they arrive at the winery. They believe in long macerations and extended maturation in large oak casks (botte). The resulting wines are suited to long term bottle ageing.
