What does this wine taste like?
The colour is a surprising vigorous and intense red, with slightly purple shades. The bouquet reveals aromas of blackberry, raspberry and blueberry combined with mineral tinges. On the palate it reveals a strong but not overbearing body, therefore very refined, with soft tannins, moderate acidity and exceptional balance. The vanilla notes, from bouquet to palate, follow one another like a well embroidered whisper.
Drinking and storing
Perfect in combination with grilled dishes, but also excellent with a pizza or to enhance a good dish of pasta with light sauces. A Barbera that has it all: conviviality but also great, amazing class.

The vineyards are between 25 and 40 years old: ripe rows, therefore, which give a full, complex and multi-faceted Barbera, in short, anything but the basic, simple, young wine it might seem.
|Vine age||Between 25 and 40 years|
For four generations the Vietti family has been producing wines in Castiglione Falletto, a small medieval village situated in the centre of one of the most propitious areas of the Langhe for the cultivation of vines, the "Barolo area". In 1957 Alfredo Currado married Luciana Vietti and since 1960, after the death of his father-in-law, the family business continued, focusing production more and more towards high quality and positioning the winery among the best in the Langhe,...
