Vietti Barolo (750ml)
The Vietti family were well known vignerons in the 19th century and finally began to produce wine under their own label in the 20th century. Vietti wines come from Castiglione Falletto vineyards, deep in the heart of the Barolo zone.
With fruit sourced from various points within the Castiglione Falletto township, the 2012 Barolo Castiglione continues on its promise to offer a solid drinking experience based purely on quality Nebbiolo. This wine speaks more to the specific qualities of Nebbiolo, more than vineyard site. It opens to a dark garnet color with young aromas of cherry and spice. Elegant balsam notes of mint and licorice add a sharper sense of definition. This is a solid-drinking Barolo for the near and medium term. Drink: 2017 – 2028
