Vietti Barbera Barbera d'Alba Scarrone 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Ruby purple color with intense aromas of concentrated ripe red and black cherries with vanilla and hints of brown spice. With refreshing acidity, rich tannins, and on the fuller-bodied side for Barbera, the single vineyard La Scaronne has finesse, excellent balance, great complexity, integration and a long lingering finish. Food Pairings: Hearty stews, seasoned pasta and poultry with rich sauces, game, roasted red meats and sharp cheeses.

Since 1974 certain Vietti wines have been dressed with specially-designed original works (lithographs, xylographies, etchings, silkscreens, linocuts) inspired by the wine of that particular vintage.

Since 1974 certain Vietti wines have been dressed with specially-designed original works (lithographs, xylographies, etchings, silkscreens, linocuts) inspired by the wine of that particular vintage. The print run is the same as the number of bottles produced, and the first hundred labels are signed by the Artist. Each work is only used once, just for the wine of that vintage. Since the presentation of the 1982 Barolo Villero in 1988, the artist’s labels have been dedicated exclusively to the wines grown on this great vineyard. Read less

Quite perfumed on the nose with a touch of sourness accenting the sweetly floral, slightly gamy top note that accents the core of sour black fruit and sweet oak. A bit low key in the mouth but showing admirable richness. There's plenty of acidity here but the tannins seem to have drained some of the fruit from the mid-palate. The tannins turn a bit splintery on the back end while the fruit does begin to reassert itself, showing off fresh plum skin, raspberry and creamy strawberry notes. The finish is short and tight with a flash of black coffee followed by acidity and wood spice. Should improve with age. 87pts

A nice red. A bit oaky.

Der Wein ist hoch konzentriert, von intensiver Fruchtigkeit und mächtiger Fülle am Gaumen. Er zeigt Noten nach schwarzen Kirschen und Brombeeren, ausserdem sind feine Röstaromen zu erkennen.
