Hallmark Boveri freshness and energy. Less ripe at 13.5% than its stable mate the 19 Marzo 1878 Barbera the Carassa is also off very old vines – 60 years.  It is equal in the high drinkability stakes but perhaps a tad more ‘serious’.  It is easy to why Tortona was planted to so much barbera – this is serious barbera country in addition to its notoriety for timorasso.  Is there better terroir for barbera? Perhaps not.
