A premium Barbera from Piedmont's leading specialist in the variety. Such is Vietti's commitment to this 'minor' variety that they makes almost as many Barberas as Barolos. 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 (2017 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."


94/100 Huon Hooke, The Real Review (2017 Vintage) 
"Very deep, bright purple/red colour. Blood plum and dark chocolate aromas, fresh and bright and very intense. Very primary. Superb depth of flavour and clarity of fruit flavour. Fine, firm, tight tannins, and quite high acidity. It's accessible now and has ageing potential. A very smart barbera. Drink 2019 – 2034."


92/100 Antonio Galloni, Vinous (2017 Vintage)
"The 2017 Barbera d'Alba Vigna Scarrone is a rich, powerful wine. Sweet tobacco, cedar, licorice and wild red cherry add striking aromatic nuance. Once an inky, dark wine, Scarrone has become more refined in recent years, which also means it is a bit less immediate, but will be more nuanced in time. There is certainly plenty to look forward to here. Drink 2022 – 2032."


92/100 Wine Spectator
"Though rich and fruity, this red is also dense and muscular, featuring violet, blackberry and black plum flavours enmeshed with the thick texture. Touches of spice and graphite add depth as this cruises to a lingering finish. Shows fine balance and length. Drink now through 2025."

  • 5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!

    5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.
