Professional Wine Reviews for Perrone Barbera Tasmorcan 2014

Rated 88 by Decanter
Stefano Perrone's 2014 Barbera d'Asti Tasmorcan is a gorgeous entry-level wine to drink now and over the next few years. Graphite, smoke, plum, licorice, lavender and savory herbs run through the 2014, all with an extra kick of the pulsating acidity that is so typical of Asti. In 2014, the Tasmorcan is a bit more savory than it usually is because of the cool growing season. Galloni

Additional Information on Perrone Barbera Tasmorcan 2014

Winery: Perrone

Varietal: Barbera

For centuries, wineries in Italy have prized their excellent Barbera grapes. This is a particularly vigorous varietal which grows well on many different soil types, so long as it has enough exposure to a Mediterranean style climate, with long, hot summers ideal for ripening the fruit and intensifying their unique flavors Barbera grapes are much loved in their native Italy and in many of the New World countries which are beginning to experiment with them, and their popularity has soared over recent years as more and more people are discovering their intense flavors of blueberries, raspberries and dried fruits. Many wineries prefer to age their grape juiced in oak barrels, which causes the Barbera varietal to pick up intense and spicy notes of vanilla and other such flavors, making for a delightfully complex yet light bodied wine perfect for drinking on sunny days.

Region: Piedmont

Situated in the north-western part of Italy, the region of Piedmont is known worldwide and is highly respected for the quality of the wines produced there. Many of the most successful sub-regions in Piedmont produce many of the world's finest red wines, such as those made from the excellent Nebbiolo grape varietal in areas such as Barolo and Barbaresco. However, the historic wineries which typify this region use a relatively wide variety of grapes, including Dolcetto and Barbera for their red wines, which are typically aged and have a delightful velvety character. Piedmont isn't all about beautifully complex red wines, though, as it is also famed for high quality, elegant sparkling wines, notably the Asti wines made with the white Moscato grape. The region benefits from a range of terroirs which are often well expressed in the sparkling wines, and a wonderfully consistent climate ideal for vineyard cultivation.

Country: Italy

For several decades in the mid to late twentieth century, Italy's reputation for quality wines took a fairly serious blow. This was brought about partly due to lack of regulation in certain regions, and too much regulation in others. This led to several wineries in the beautiful and highly fertile region of Tuscany making the bold move to work outside of the law, which they saw as responsible for the drop in quality in Tuscan wines. They believed that they had the expertise and the generations of experience necessary with which to make truly excellent, world class wines, and set about doing just that. These 'Super Tuscans', as they came to be known, quickly inspired the rest of Italy to improve their produce, and now, Italian wine producers in the twenty-first century are widely recognised to be amongst the best in the world. Regulation and law began to change, and wine drinkers across the globe woke up to the outstanding wines coming out of Italy, which are continuing to improve and impress to this day.
