TASTING NOTES

"The Vietti 2017 Barbera d'Alba Vigna Scarrone is defined by a spot of sweetness backed by generous layers of dried blackberry, plum and black cherry. This vintage offers a generous level of intensity that is soft and almost succulent in character. There is so much primary fruit in this wine, but the complexity and the varietal character of the grape remain beautifully intact nonetheless. Exactly 11,916 bottles and 175 magnums were made, as you will see written on the front label." Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Though rich and fruity, this red is also dense and muscular, featuring violet, blackberry and black plum flavors enmeshed with the thick texture. Touches of spice and graphite add depth as this cruises to a lingering finish. Shows fine balance and length. Drink now through 2025. 992 cases made, 242 cases imported." Wine Spectator

"The 2017 Barbera d'Alba Vigna Scarrone is a rich, powerful wine. Sweet tobacco, cedar, licorice and wild red cherry add striking aromatic nuance. Once an inky, dark wine, Scarrone has become more refined in recent years, which also means it is a bit less immediate, but will be more nuanced in time. There is certainly plenty to look forward to here." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Licorice, burnt blackberries, tea leaves and dried spices are in play. Full body. Lightly grainy tannins bring structure and gravitas to the mix. Drink from 2021." JamesSuckling.com
