    "Scarrone Vigna Vecchia" Barbera d'Alba DOC 2017

    Complex aroma with notes of wild berries, chocolate and mint, on the palate a lot of power, fruit and fullness, spicy and opulent final. A Barbera that can and should mature ... But take care, because the minimal edition of this exquisite extract from almost 1.4 hectares of vineyards is usually sold out in no time. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Planted in 1918, Vietti's oldest plot of Barbera is located in the Scarrone cru, overlooking its underground cellars in Castiglione Falletto. The vines naturally yield a low 1kg per plant. Remarkably concentrated, fleshy fruit is enveloped in soft, luxurious tannins. Juicy through the core with hints of fennel and peppermint, it offers black currants, black cherry and plum flavours. This could do with an additional year in bottle but will hold brilliantly for another decade." Decanter

    "The 2017 Barbera d'Alba Vigna Vecchia Scarrone is positively gorgeous. Savory, nuanced and beautifully layered in the glass, the 2017 possesses tremendous complexity and character - the brutally hot year notwithstanding. It is also very different from the straight Scarrone Barbera, which has not always been the case of late. I would prefer to cellar the 2017 for at least a few years." Vinous

    "Made with precious old vines, some of which have reached the 100-year mark, the Vietti 2017 Barbera d'Alba Vigna Vecchia Scarrone is a deep, dark and luscious red wine. It tops the charts in terms of color intensity and fruit heft. The concentration and density of the wine is considerable; however, the mouthfeel never feels heavy or overdone. Yes, this is a dark and brooding Barbera, but that fresh acidity gives the wine a little skip and jump in its proverbial footsteps. That condensed fruit is followed by rusty nail, crushed stone and black licorice." Robert Parker
