Ian D’Agata: Scarpa La Bogliona a “benchmark” Barbera d’Asti

“When it’s good,” writes the prolific wine writer Ian D’Agata in his landmark work Italy’s Native Wine Grape Terroirs (University of California Press 2019), “Barbera d’Asti is simply a great wine.”

In his chapter devoted to the appellation, he names Scarpa Barbera d’Asti La Bogliona, the winery’s top cru, one of the designation’s “benchmark” wines (page 53).

If you haven’t picked up a copy of the book yet, be sure to check it out.

“Among English-language wine writers focusing on Italy,” wrote Eric Asimov in his review for the New York Times, “Mr. D’Agata’s scholarship is unsurpassed.”

We couldn’t be more thrilled to have been included in such an important work of Italian ampelography.
