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
Pale ruby color, slight garnet hue, with intense aromas of ripe Bing cherries, tea leaves and rose petals. With firm, ripe tannins, crisp acidity and feminine and round structure. Excellent balance, integration and a long, lingering finish.

Luca?s 2009 Barbaresco Masseria shows rich fruit and dark spice backed by elegant shadings of crushed mineral and dried tobacco. It shows a delicate nature in the mouth with lean, compact texture. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.
