Vintage

Grape: Barbera 90%, Nebbiolo 10%.
ABV: 14%.
Yearly production: 5000 bottles.

Colour: Intense ruby red.

Aroma: Winy, fruity and herbaceous with a hint of red berries, green pepper, and black peppercorns.

Taste: Medium body, dry with good acidity and slightly tannic. Very good persistence.

Behind the label: Sconsolata is literally translated in “disconsolately”.
The name comes after the owner tried to deposit the copyright for several different names that were all already taken. Once they arrived home from the copyright register office they said: “our Barbera is really disconsolately”.

Producer: Glicine, Marcorino, Curra, are names that are reminiscent of this small winery that took roots in 1980, named “del Glicine” as a tribute to a century-old wisteria located in the garden. They began producing for enjoyment in small quantities with both successes and disappointment. Slowly the past time grew into business facilitated by the existing unique 17th century cellar, which is a great example of Piedmontese Baroque kept in perfect condition. The silence, the darkness, the moistness, and the coolness are ideal for the storage and aging wines.
