94 points, “A beautiful wine and a fully-loaded Nebbiolo.” – Wine Advocate

Commanding universal praise, Vietti has tamed the enormous tannins of the Ravera vineyard in Novello. The oldest part of this vineyard was planted in 1935, resulting in rich concentration and show-stopping intensity. Aged for 32 months in Slovenian oak casks, this fabulous Barolo has spice, mint, plum, cranberry, rose petal, pomegranate, asphalt on a hot day in abundance, and a foresty quality. Decant to allow it to unfurl, and pair with game, rare red meats, wild mushrooms, roast dinner or truffles.

Creating their first wines in 1919, the Vietti estate has been at the forefront of pioneering single-vineyard Barolo. The Currado family owns vineyards in each of the 11 Barolo villages and also helped to save the white grape variety Arneis from extinction with help from the late Bruno Giacosa. Writing for Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, Italian wine expert Antonio Galloni said: “I think it is fair to say readers will be stunned by the quality of the wines that are emerging from this family-run property in Castiglione Falletto.” So prepare yourself to be stunned.
