The 2014 Vietti Barolo red wine is composed of grapes selected from small vineyards spread in the Barolo region. The vines are between 7 and 40 years old, planted in a clay-limestone soil. Plants are trained with guyot method, with an average density of roughly 4500 units per hectare. All the different crus are vinified and aged separately with slightly different processes to underline the singular characteristics of each parcel and terroir. Fermentation occurs in stainless steel with daily cap submersion for extraction of flavor and colour.
“Beautiful glowing ruby. Fine earthy nose, but right now quite backward. Succulent palate with a powerful tannic structure. Really long and a little vibrant. Firm, long red-fruit finish”
"A classic Nebbiolo packed with strawberries, tar and earthy flavours. Beautifully candied fruits balance the firm structure of high and tannins to make this wine approachable now."
