The Vietti winery traces its roots back to the 19th Century. The Vietti winery grew to one of the top-level producers in Piemonte and was one of the first wineries to export its products to the USA market. Alfredo Currado (Luciana Vietti’s husband) was one of the first to select and vinify grapes from single vineyards (such as Brunate, Rocche and Villero). This was a radical concept at the time, but today virtually every vintner making Barolo and Barbaresco wines offers "single vineyard" or "cru-designated" wines.
Vietti Barbera d'Asti Tre Vigne 2008
Grapes from vineyards in Agliano d’Asti, in the La Crena site with part of the oldest vineyards used for our Cru La Crena and other adjacent vineyards. Ruby purple color with ripe red cherry aromas with hints of mineral and vanilla. A dry, medium bodied red wine with refreshing acidity and soft tannins. Barbera d’Asti Tre Vigne flows from the glass with a blast of mineral-infused ripe dark fruit, tar, smoke and toasted oak. This medium to full-bodied, brooding Barbera could use another few months in bottle to come together.
The Barbera d'Asti Tre Vigne is well balanced with good integration of oak, good complexity and a finish of more red cherries. The Wine Advocate - "The 2008 Barbera d'Asti Tre Vigne is a fresh, vinous wine ideal for drinking over the next few years. This mid-weight Barbera offers excellent balance, if not the pedigree of the finest vintages."
Rated 89 - The Wine Advocate.
