The wine

Tre Vigne is the winery’s most ready and snappy Barbera. As the name says, it derives from three Langhe crus, which make up the blend. These are Castiglione Falletto, Monforte d'Alba and La Morra, that is, three of the most renowned municipalities for Barolo. 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. In fact, Tre Vigne is given an ageing period for a small great wine of about one year between large barrel, barrique and steel.

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. 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.

Vietti

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,...
