Tasting Note:

An excellent vineyard acquisition by Luigi Scavino in 2000, Voghera Brea is a fine one-hectare plot of 65-year-old vines in the Serralunga commune that will only produce Riserva wines in top vintages. Aged in large oak "botti" casks. A ripe sweet spice nose of liquorice, Demerara, moscavado sugar, round tight knit tannins great freshness and length, really focused vinous but minerally, hugely powerful but seamlessly so, generous, ripe fruit flavours of cherry stone, sloe, damson, plum black cherry and blueberry, undertones of cool, smooth bitter sweet dark chocolate.
