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. Drink 2022-2032.

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. Drink 2020-2028.
This is the finest, most complete set of wines I have ever tasted from Vietti. Congratulations.
Vietti is één van de allerbeste Cantina’s in Piemonte. Het is een familiale onderneming in een streek waar de mentaliteit goed aansluit bij de onze en die al generaties lang heerlijke wijnen maakt. Opgelet: ons enthousiasme voor deze exquise wijnen is besmettelijk!
If forced to inhabit a desert island that only served the wines of a single producer, I would want Luca Currado to be that supplier. He excels at everything he does from his castle perch at the heart of Castiglione Falletto.
