The history of the Vietti winery traces its roots back to the 19th Century. The estate, which has been in the Vietti family for four generations, is based in the village of Castiglione Falletto in Piedmont’s Langhe region. In 1919 Mario Vietti transformed the family’s farm into a grape growing and wine producing business, creating the first Vietti labeled wines. Alfredo Currado married Mario’s daughter Luciana and made a name for Vietti’s single-vineyard Barolo and Barbera. He also put the native Piedmont varietal Arneis on the wine map. In 1990 Alfredo and Luciana’s son Luca joined the family business as winemaker after working at California’s Simi Winery, Opus One and Long Vineyards, and Bordeaux’s Mouton- Rothschild. His innovative winemaking utilizes a unique combination of modern and traditional practices. He eliminated equipment that measures acid and tannin levels in favor of a more intuitive approach. Vietti organically farms more than 25 single vineyards with vines up to 90 years of age.

Tasting notes
Concentrated notes of ripe red and black cherries with vanilla and hints of brown spice are beautifully integrated with refreshing acidity and rich, long tannins.

Technical notes
(100% Barbera). Fruit from vines planted in 1988 in the Scarrone Vineyard was fermented in open steel tanks for 16 days. At the beginning of the malolactic fermentation, the wine was moved into French oak barrels and oak casks for 14 months after which it was transferred to stainless steel tanks for two months. The wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
