A premium Barbera from Piedmont's leading specialist in the variety. Vietti makes almost as many Barbera as Barolo wines, such is his commitment to this 'minor' variety. The wonderful Scarrone is from a special vineyard near the winery in Castiglione Falletto, where lovingly tended vines are very close planted (6500 per hectare) and produce tiny quantities of around 5 ton per hectare. A lush and structured wine with deep fruit character and quality, the Scarrone is a treasure.


They made wine here back in the 1800s, but it was not until 1919 that Mario Vietti turned the family farm to viticulture and Vietti labels first appeared on the Italian market. The winery grew through the 1950’s, when new export markets opened and Mario’s daughter and son in law Alfredo Currado pioneered what was later to become a defining regional idea – single vineyard Barolo and Barbaresco. Today Vietti remain a towering name, with a portfolio occupying the top tier in most Piedmontese categories – particularly their profoundly important expressions of Cru Barolo. 


Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Ruby purple colour with intense aromas of ripe red and black cherries. With refreshing acidity, rich tannins, full body, the single vineyard Scarrone has finesse, excellent balance, great complexity, integration and a long lingering finish."


93/100 James Suckling (2016 Vintage)
"Such a perfumed and complex nose for a Barbera with pressed lavender, violets, orange peel and citrus. Medium to full body, layered and serious tannins and a medium-long, spicy yet taut finish. Drink now."


92/100 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2016 Vintage)
"The 2016 Barbera d’Alba Vigna Scarrone sees fruit sourced from a vineyard site that is located right under the Vietti household. The vines are 29 years old and are therefore old enough to have lost their youthful vigor, resulting in rich and more concentrated fruit. This balanced and elegant expression offers black fruit aromas that are backed by healthy extraction and density. There is a point of bright acidity on the close. It adds chiseled intensity and focused sharpness."


91/100 Tom Hyland, Decanter (2016 Vintage) 
"A more opulent style than most 2016 Barberas: very ripe blackberry, black plum and anise aromas, medium-full with a richly concentrated mid-palate, ample oak and notable persistence. Needs a lot more time."
