La Carlina Barbera d'Asti 'Fontanavi' DOCG 2018 (Piedmont, Italy)


100% Barbera

The brother and sister duo of Camilla and Francesco Scavino founded this small winery in 2014 at the foot of the Medieval castle that towers over the village of Grinzane Cavour.

The name “La Carlina” is a reference to the farm of their grandmother where the family would celebrate and party, which is also the place where Camilla and Francesco began experimenting with winemaking as teenagers. Vineyards are scattered between the hills of the Langhe and Monferrato, and farming is organic.

La Carlina’s releases are progressive examples of Piedmont’s landscape – Deeply colored, opulent wines with tremendous purity and sense of place.

"Intense ruby red color. Rich and deep, with red ripe fruits such as blackberries, plums and cherries and red fruits jams; then spices and tobacco are reaching the surface creating a smooth balance within balsamic and fruity notes. Full bodied and well structured, supported by a good acidity which creates a smooth and velvet balance."
