Vietti's Barbera d'Alba Scarrone Vigna Vecchia is one of the most notable Barbera in the world. From vines planted in 1918 (yep - 100 year old Barbera vines), this wine is has incredible depth and concentration, great acidity and lots of tension.

94 POINTS, 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.
