  • An intense and energetic Barolo, showing finesse yet power with complex floral, fruity, mineral, and spicy notes underpinned by firm, compact tannins through to a refined and everlasting finish. 2018 was a cool year, characterised by a rainy start to the season, especially in April, followed by slightly below-average temperatures through the summer. September brought ideal conditions with perfect diurnal temperature swings, which are important for the phenolic ripening of grapes. 2018 resulted in classic and elegant wines.

The grapes were destemmed and gently crushed before being transferred into stainless steel tanks for fermentation, where they spent four to five weeks with skin contact, including pre- and post-fermentation maceration, using the traditional submerged cap method. Slow malolactic fermentation took place in large casks until late spring. The wine spent over a year on its fine lees without racking. The wine was matured for 32 months in large Slavonian and French oak casks and was bottled without filtration.

An intense and energetic Barolo, it shows finesse yet power. Complex floral, fruity, mineral, and spicy notes are underpinned by firm, compact tannins, which lead to a refined and everlasting finish.

Winery

The grapes come from the single vineyard Cru ‘Ravera’ in the municipality of Novello. The Vietti estate vines cover around three hectares, located on a wonderful hillside with a western to southwestern exposure. The soil is calcareous clayey, and there is the presence of the renowned Marne di Sant’Agata, a limestone-rich marl in which the Nebbiolo variety thrives and produces refined wines. The grapevines have an average age of 30 years, but the oldest part of the vineyard was planted in 1935. These nearly 90-year-old, low-yielding vines produce concentrated and complex juice. The vines are trained according to the Guyot trellis system at a density of around 4,500 vines per hectare. The vines are hand-harvested in October.
