Notes
Another highlight in this range, the 2014 Barolo Ravera opens with the most exquisite, captivating aromatics imaginable. It will be interesting to see if it develops a bit more midpalate depth and pliancy. Today, the 2014 is a bit austere, even within the context of the year and this site, where the wines are a bit on the nervous side to start. I have seen Vietti Raveras blossom into spectacular wines and imagine that will be the case here as well. Readers should not plan on opening a bottle anytime soon.

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.
