About This Producer


Decades of experience as vineyard tenders in Barolo provided the Vietti family with priceless information when they decided to go into the winemaking business in the early 1900s. The firm recently acquired an additional 7 hectares of vineyards, bringing their holdings to a total of 31. Their link to the land has been the catalyst for their vineyard-designate bottlings, which showcase Barolo's diverse terroir. The wines' finesse belies their extraordinary depth and complexity; Vietti firmly adheres to the classic style that makes the wines of Piedmont such a revelation to those patient enough to cellar them.

Wine Varietal: Barbera


Barbera thrives in hot, dry climates, so it is well-suited to its historical home, the Piedmont region. The most well-known examples are Barbera d'Alba and Barbera d'Asti. It is also grown in warm climates such as the San Joaquin Valley in California where it is used for bulk wine. Barbera has the tendency to be high in alcohol and acid, but low in tannins. Typical descriptors for Barbera include red fruit, currants, cranberries and blackberries.
