Unseeded Vesnina opened the match with a service break and led 4-1.
However, Errani began to apply heavy forehands with spin that earned her four games in a row to take the first set.
In the second, Errani was 5-2 up before Vesnina regained her focus and charged back to within one point of evening the score. Instead, Errani earned her fifth career title on the WTA tour.
