Founded in 1854, Scarpa has developed a distinctive image of winery specialized in top single vineyards and “Riserva” wines, acquiring a worldwide reputation as a champion of the traditional method of vinification, with long maceration processes and an extended maturation in large French Allier oak barrels.
Today Scarpa still shows the same passion and commitment in producing exclusive wines to be appreciated by the connoisseurs around the world. The cellar management is no trend-seeker; no international varieties are used to strictly maintain the unique style of the wine in the local Piedmont tradition. The range includes Barbera d’Asti, Dolcetto d’Acqui, Freisa, Dry Brachetto, Nebbiolo d’Alba, Barbaresco, Barolo and Rouchet.
Il Barbaresco "Tettineive" dell'"Antica Casa Vinicola Scarpa", comes from Nebbiolo grapes in rosé varieties, after vinification, is poured into large oak barrels of Allier where it stops for 24 months. The cellar produces about 5,000 bottles per year. Intense, harmonious, soft but strong and refined. Exceptional vintage.
