Elio Perrone Tasmorcan – Perfect for the Holidays
Elio Perrone Tasmorcan Barbera d’Asti red wine is perfect for the holidays, with food or without.
Medium in body with perfect acidity and soft tannins, this Barbera is ruby red in color and offers a delightful nose of red berries, cherries, violets and French oak, and intense flavors of raspberries, cherries, vanilla and spice.
Fresh and fruit-driven, it’s an excellent expression of the grape that wears its old-vine pedigree on its sleeve. Long, ripe and polished on the finish, it’s a food-friendly red wine that will drink well for 5-7 years.
In short, the Elio Perrone Tasmorcan is a very affordable Barbera that provides a lot of bang for the buck.
A Brief History of Elio Perrone’s “Tasmorcan”
When he purchased the esteemed Mongovone vineyard in Asti in 1999, Stafano Perrone took on a new challenge with the Barbera grape.
In 2001, he replanted half of Mongovone and now uses the young vines for Tasmorcan, an intentionally beguiling red that captures the ethereal freshness for which the Asti region is famous.
In Piemontese, “Tasmorcan” means badger, a name chosen by Perrone due to the efforts required to fend off the little furry beasts who had a taste for the freshly-planted Barbera vines.
100% Barbera, the Elio Perrone Tasmorcan is aged for 6-10 months in large oak barrels before it is bottled for your enjoyment!
