GRAPE VARIETAL(S)
Nebbiolo
100% Neb-BYO-lo
Nebbiolo is not only Piedmont’s, but also one of Italy’s most esteemed grape varietals, producing Tone & Backbone expressive, age-worthy wines. Nebbiolo is planted on south facing hillsides with the best wines planted on calcareous marl soil to the north and south of Alba in Barbaresco and Barolo. Nebbiolo tends to be pale in color, with brick notes with age that appear earlier than most other red wine varieties. In its youth, it has crisp acidity and high tannin, and with time displays ethereal perfumed aromas of including, cherries, tar, smoke, licorice, roses, and violets.

Vietti's Vineyard OverviewVietti's Vineyard Overview

Vietti winery is burrowed into the hills just outside of Castiglione Falletto, where they used gravity flow by design before it became a buzzword. The dark-stone winery rooms are juxtaposed by the bright sunny vineyards that constitute some of the most prized terroir in Barolo. 

The wines of Vietti are intensely structured age-worthy wines that require patience, but offer beguiling aromas and flavors that make them hard to resist even in their youth.
