Vietti Barbera d'Alba "Vigna Scarrone - Vigna Vecchia" '16

Piedmont

Vietti Barbera d'Alba "Vigna Scarrone - Vigna Vecchia" '16

The "Vigna Vecchia" cuvée comes from the oldest vines of the Scarrone area in Castiglione Falletto, all of which are southeast-facing plantings. The naturally low yields due to the age, are further reduced by a strict selection of the grapes. The wine is then aged for 18 months in a mixture large oak barrels, barrique and tank. This is a full-bodied Barbera, with floral and fruity aromas of blackberry and refreshing acidity, rich and soft tannins, finesse, excellent balance, great complexity, integration and a long lingering finish. This is easily an area that could've been planted with Nebbiolo vines, showcasing extreme potential. Age for easily 15+ years. Every bit as good as the top Barolo of the region.
