Densely packed, suave and fine-grained, with a chocolatey richness and a thick texture leavened by sound acidity. Finishes broad and long, with strong torrefaction flavors. The crop level here was just 25 hectoliters per hectare, according to Luca Currado. Scarrone is adjacent to the Rocche vineyard and in fact has nebbiolo planted all around it.
