Professional Wine Reviews for Vietti Barbera D'alba Vigna Vecchia Scarrone 2016

Rated 94 by Wine Advocate
This wine is made from the oldest vines-most of which were planted 100 years ago-in the Scarrone vineyard. The 2016 Barbera d’Alba Vigna Vecchia Scarrone is an outstanding wine in my estimation. I love the depth and sheer dimension that it puts so effortlessly on display. You get powerfully concentrated black fruit that ultimately finds smooth balance against the fresh acidity and soft tannins of the grape. Luca Currado tells me it was impossible to make a bad wine in the classic 2016 vintage. He must be right.
Rated 93 by Vinous Media
Vietti's 2016 Barbera d'Alba Vigna Vecchia Scarrone is fabulous. Rich and enveloping, with tremendous structure, the 2016 is superbly beautiful. Plush fruit and soft contours give the wine much of its immediacy and appeal. Two thousand sixteen is also a vintage in which the purity and depth of the fruit are quite evident, while the French oak is not.

Winery Vietti

Region: Piedmont

For hundreds of years, the beautiful alpine region of Piedmont in north-west Italy has been producing excellent quality red wines, and some of the most characterful sparkling white wines to have ever come out of the Old World. The region is dominated by the mighty Alps which form the border between Italy, France and Switzerland, and the Moscato grapes that are grown in the foothills of this mountain range carry much of the Alps' flavors in their fruit, and are fed by crystal clear mountain waters. However, it is the Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera grapes which are the real stars of this region, and the highly respected wineries which cover much of Piedmont have generations of experience when it comes to processing and aging these grape varietals to produce the superb wines which come out of appellations such as Barolo and Barberesco.

Country: Italy

It isn't difficult to understand why Italy is famed not just for the quality of its wines, but also for the vast variety and range of characteristics found in the wines there. The terrain of the country varies wildly, from the lush rolling green hills and valley of Tuscany, to the sun drenched rocky coasts of Sicily, the mountainous and alpine regions of the north, and the marshy lowlands of the east. Italy really does have a little bit of everything. Combine this huge range of landscapes with an almost perfect climate for grape cultivation, and you have a country seemingly designed for viticultural excellence. The results speak for themselves, and it is clear to see that wine has become an inseparable part of Italian culture as a result of its abundance and brilliance. Each village, city and region has a local wine perfectly matched with the cuisine of the area, and not an evening passes without the vast majority of Italian families raising a glass of locally sourced wine with pride and pleasure.
