This Barolo from selected small vineyard sites through the Barolo region of Northern Italy is a beautiful intense ruby colour in the glass, with plenty of red and black ripe cherry, and blackberry, with the classic Nebbiolo notes of rose petals and tobacco. The palate is powerful and rich with dried savoury herbs, leather, and dried red fruits. The finish is long with a well-integrated tannic structure that will continue to benefit from a long decanting now, or ageing in the cellar for another 8-10 years. 14.5% ABV.
Vietti is a family who have been making delicious Barolo, Barbera and other mainly red wines for almost 200 years. They are based in Castiglione Falletto which is one of the best parts of Barolo, in Piemonte, northwest Italy. They made the wine news a few years ago after they sold the business and the vineyards to an American entrepreneur and wine lover. It was seen as controversial at the time but in reality meant that Elena and Luca could continue to make even greater wine with outside help in terms of investment into the cellar, land and wines. A powerful wine like this will pair with stewed meats, wild game, red meats and hard cheeses. see more at www.vietti.com
