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 and 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
A pale yellow color with aromas of fresh florals, citrus and melons with hints of almonds. An elegant, medium-bodied wine with crisp acidity, good complexity and a lingering finish.

Technical notes
Fruit from 26+ year old vines planted in Santo Stefano Roero area was crushed, pressed and clarified. The wine fermented in stainless steel autoclaves at controlled temperatures to preserve some natural CO2. Malolactic was blocked and the wine was transferred to stainless steel tanks until bottling.
