Vietti Perbacco Langhe Nebbiolo DOC 2014
The history of Vietti can be traced back to the 19th century, when Mario Vietti made his first wines, selling most of his production to local villagers. Today, Vietti is one of the first rank of Barolo producers and its wines are highly sought-after. The single-vineyard wines are all astonishing but the Castiglione (made from fruit sourced from across Vietti’s sites) is our favourite: a textbook Barolo with elegance, power, fruit and spice.
Offers up generous fruit along with menthol, spices and hard candy, showing notable intensity while retaining an essentially mid-weight style. Strong, intense and powerful when young, complex and elegant with the ageing.
Hearty stew, wild game, roasted red meats and sharp, aged cheeses.
