Vietti Barbera d'Alba Scarrone Vigna Vecchia 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Tight and sweet on the nose with an oaky overlay of vanilla and spice laying atop the core of black fruit. Supple and old viney in the mouth, this has super fine tannins supporting big and dense liquory black cherry fruit that shows a bit of sour plum in the mouth. Big fruit, density and power in the mouth are trademarks of this wine along with with plenty of mineral character and a long chocolate streaked finish. This is wilky and long, with great fruit but the oak is certainly present and might detract from the fruit a bit. 92pts

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
