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

The beautiful region of Piedmont in the north west of Italy is responsible for producing many of Europe's finest red wines. Famous appellations such as Barolo and Barbaresco are the envy of wine-makers all over the world, and attract plenty of tourism as a result of their traditional techniques and the stunning setting they lie in. The region has a similar summer climate to nearby French regions such as Bordeaux, but the rest of their year is considerably colder, and far drier as a result of the rain shadow cast by the Alps. The wineries which cover much of Piedmont have, over many generations, mastered how to make the most of the Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera grapes which thrive here, and nowadays are beginning to experimenting with many imported varietals to increase the region's range and meet international demand.

Country: Italy

Italy is recognised as being one of the finest wine producing countries in the world, and it isn't difficult to see why. With a vast amount of land across the country used primarily for vineyard cultivation and wine production, each region of Italy manages to produce a wide range of excellent quality wines, each representative of the region it is produced in. Any lover of Italian wines will be able to tell you of the variety the country produces, from the deliciously astringent and alpine-fresh wines of the northern borders, to the deliciously jammy and fruit-forward wines of the south and the Italian islands. Regions such as Barolo are frequently compared with Bordeaux and Burgundy in France, as their oak aged red wines have all the complexity and earthy, spicy excellence of some of the finest wines in the world, and the sparkling wines of Asti and elsewhere in Italy can easily challenge and often exceed the high standards put forward by Champagne. Thanks to excellent terrain and climatic conditions, Italy has long since proven itself a major player in the world of wines, and long may this dedication to quality and excellence continue.
