Here’s top American wine writer and blogger Joe Roberts tasting note for the Scarpa 2014 Rouchet, which he tasted late last year at the winery:
“Roses, perfume, pepper, dried herbs, mint, and sour cherries kick things off with this excellent – and stainless steel only – version of one of Italy’s wilier red varieties. There’s a smooth palate entry, austere tannins, and a finish that’s long, tasty, chocolaty, and spicy.”
Thank you, Joe! It was a pleasure to taste those wines with you!
