Tasting Notes


Maturity:
Keep

ABV:
14 %

Notes

Bright and very fine. The flavours are brilliant, ripe but incisive; they are held in check but tight-knit tannins that have a fine chalkiness to them. The fruit is classical, elegant and crisp offering flavours of pure crystalline fresh red berry and cherry, with touches of wild strawberry and loganberry, finishing on a twist of earth and spice. A beautiful blend of 15 different parcels accross the Barolo area that is aged for 30 months in a mixture of different cask sizes (6 months of which are in barriques.)

Vietti

Vietti

The history of the Vietti winery traces its roots back to the 19th century, but it was only at the beginning of the 20th century that Vietti started to bottle up its own wines. Patriarch Mario Vietti, started in 1919 with the first Vietti wines and sold most of the production in Italy. Then, in 1952, Alfredo Currado (Luciana Vietti’s husband) continued to produce high quality wines from their own vineyards and purchased grapes. The Vietti winery soon grew to one of the top-level producers in Piemonte and was one of the first wineries to export its wines to, among others, the USA. Alfredo was one of the first to select and vinify grapes from single vineyards (such as Brunate, Rocche and Villero), a radical concept at the time. The Currados have three children, Emanuela, Elisabetta and Luca involved in production and marketing. The estate now stands at 35 hectares and the cellars are based in Castiglione Falleto. After the fermentation in steel tanks the Barolo is aged for 24 months in large Slavonian oak casks and bottled without filtration. The Cru Barolos undergo the same process in addition to an extra six months’ ageing in smaller oak barriques. These are some of Barolos very best.
