2011 Giacomo Conterno Barbera d'Alba Cascina Francia
2007 Vietti Barbera d'Alba Scarrone Vigne Vecchia
"The 2007 Barbera d’Alba Scarrone Vigna Vecchia flows onto the palate with a stunning and totally irresistible expression of dark, round fruit. Tar, smoke, licorice and new leather linger on the round, polished finish. The Vigna Vecchia remains exceedingly young, but it is a spectacular effort and should develop very nicely in bottle. This is a wonderful, sensual and compelling Barbera from Vietti. Sadly there are just under 3,600 bottles to go around."
