Description
 
The history of the Vietti winery traces its roots back to the 19th Century. Patriarch Mario Vietti, starting from 1919 made the first Vietti wines, selling most of the production in Italy. In 1952, Alfredo Currado (Luciana Viettiā€™s husband) continued to produce high quality wines from their own vineyards and purchased grapes. The Vietti winery grew to one of the top-level producers in Piedmont. Alfredo was also one of the first to select and vinify grapes from single vineyards. Since 1974 certain Vietti wines have been dressed with speciallydesigned original works (lithographs, xylographies, etchings, silkscreens, linocuts) inspired by the wine of that particular vintage. The print run is the same as the number of bottles produced, and the first hundred labels are signed by the Artist. Each work is only used once, just for the wine of that vintage.

After its malolactic fermentation in small wood casks and a year in botte grande, the totally unfiltered 2017 Barbera d'Alba Tre Vigne shows up as soft, immediate and rich, with nice little chocolate notes around the borders. Impressively, the various parcels of vines for this wine are all in the middle of the prestigious Barolo appellation. The word around the estate is that 2016 was a better vintage, but this was an attractive expression in itself and would be a hearty companion to any hearty pasta dish. About 28,000 bottles were made.
