($82; these vines are now 85 years old, according to Currado) Full ruby-red. Brooding aromas of blackberry, licorice and spicy oak. Even sweeter than the regular Scarrone but less lush and open today. In fact, this powerful barbera, which conveys a strong impression of acidity and finishes with serious tongue-dusting tannins, is a bit musclebound today. This one demands patience, but only time will tell if it will ever provide the sheer pleasure of the regular bottling.
