Vietti Barbera d'Alba Vigna Vecchia Scarrone 2010

Vietti Barbera d'Alba Vigna Vecchia Scarrone 750ml 2010   
Sku: 1736560*

The history of the Vietti winery traces its roots back to the 19th Century. The estate, which has been in the Vietti family for four generations, is based in the village of Castiglione Falletto in Piedmont’s Langhe region. In 1919 Mario Vietti transformed the family’s farm into a grape growing and wine producing business, creating the first Vietti labeled wines. Alfredo Currado married Mario’s daughter Luciana and made a name for Vietti’s single-vineyard Barolo and Barbera. He also put the native Piedmont varietal Arneis on the wine map. In 1990 Alfredo and Luciana’s son Luca joined the family business as winemaker after working at California’s Simi Winery, Opus One, Long Vineyards and Bordeaux’s Mouton-Rothschild. His innovative winemaking utilizes a unique combination of modern and traditional practices. He eliminated equipment that measures acid and tannin levels in favor of a more intuitive approach. Vietti organically farms more than 25 single vineyards with vines up to 90 years of age.

Tasting notes
This full-bodied wine offers refreshing acidity that is well integrated with rich and soft tannins. The long finish shows wonderful complexity and finesse.

Technical notes
The 90+ year old vines were planted in a southeast exposition on a 2.5 acre parcel. The fruit was cold macerated and then fermented for 10 days in steel vats with pneumo-mechanical breaking up of the cap followed by racking and return. The wine remained on its skins for seven days, was transferred to barrel for eight months for its malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged for 10 months in oak casks and bottled unfiltered.
