Made from Nebbiolo grapes only from Barolo designated vineyards, this wine is complex and elegant with excellent ageing potential.

Round, suave tannins add to the long and refined finish. Vietti is among the most esteemed producers in Barolo. The Perbacco is made from parcels in Bricco Boschis, Liste, Brunella, Crocetta, Pernanno, Fossati, Ravera in Novello and Scarrone, all within the Barolo and Barbaresco regions.

White pepper, cherry, tea, juniper and tobacco flavors dissolve into a swath of tannins that leave a grip on the finish. Though elegant, this feels more like a Barolo in profile and structure. Best from 2020 through 2030.

The ‘entry level’ Vietti wine, per se, with a goal to taking other wines to best level by removing the ‘lesser fruit’, but a wine built to be an introduction to nebbiolo from Piedmont too. Juicy, bright wine of nebbiolo 101 personality showing red cherry, rose water, floral notes, tar and char. Fine and fresh feeling wine, transparent, almost washy, but that spread of lacy tannin still shows you who is boss. It’s a great drink and has neat DNA of fancier Vietti wines. Comely trattoria style.
