Tasting Notes

Praise for the estate from Antonio Galloni: "Vietti is one of Italy’s most historic wineries. Husband and wife Alfredo Currado and Luciana Vietti (Luca Currado’s parents) were pioneers in so many ways. They were among the first producers to bottle single-vineyard Barolo and to promote Piedmont and its wines abroad, especially in the United States... In 1961, Alfredo and Luciana Currado made their first single vineyard Barolo Rocche from the family’s prized hillside site in Castiglione Falletto. The same year, Beppe Colla also made a Barolo Bussia at Prunotto. Bruno Giacosa followed in 1964 with the first single-vineyard Barbaresco, his epic Santo Stefano Riserva. These three seminal wines changed the history of Piedmont forever... Now in its fourth generation, Vietti remains very much a family affair. Winemaker Luca Currado, his brother-in-law Mario Cordero, along with their families and tightly knit staff, have taken the early groundbreaking work of Alfredo and Luciana Currado and built upon those successes, reaching an unprecedented level of consistency and quality across their entire range. Vietti is the only estate in Piedmont that owns vineyards in all eleven of the Barolo-producing villages. Many of the parcels are located in the region’s most historic and pedigreed sites."
