Vietti Langhe Nebbiolo Perbacco 2010

Vietti Langhe Nebbiolo Perbacco 750ML 2010      
Sku: 50368

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, 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
Generous and round notes of ripe fruit along with menthol, spices and hard candy retaining are nicely integrated with structured tannins and bright acidity.

Rating
 Wine Spectator 90 points (Feb 28 2014)
Rich and chunky, with dense tannins focusing the cherry, floral, tobacco and underbrush flavors. This is compact on the finish, showing more savory than fruit elements. Drink now through 2018. 2,200 cases made. –BS

Grapes from Bricco Boschis, Liste, Brunella, Crocetta, Pernanno, Fossati, Ravera in Novello and Scarrone were vinified and aged separately. The wine matured in barriques for 10 months and then transferred to Slovenian oak for an additional 16 months.
