No Luca sighting this time, but at least his wines had their way to Systembolaget in Sweden. For me personally, Vietti’s 2010 Barbera d’Alba Vigna Scarrone was one of this summer’s big surprises. Not that it has not always been a great Barbara, but I realized going through a couple of bottles this summer, that this wine really punches way above it’s weight class. Absolutely perfect with most light pasta dishes.
So, now, if in Sweden, you can get both this, the Langhe Nebbiolo Perbacco, and the Barolo Castiglione. It’s a start, a good one too.
Perhaps the Swedes gets the rest of the Barolo lineup, as well as the divine La Crena (Barbera) next?
