Vietti Barbera d'Alba Vigna Scarrone 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Minerally on the nose and subtly floral with a little spicy black juniper and a bit of sweet cherry compote. Sweet fruit greets the mouth then this turns taut and a little chewy in the mouth while delivering a rich mouth full of black fruit, spicy with good acids and lots of flesh surrounding the acids. There’s a little sweet toasty spice adding detail and length here, but this is pretty powerfully laden with fruit and a few year ageing should see the spice note integrate fully and the deep fruit should relax and extend the already attractive finish. 90pts

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
