Since 1974 certain Vietti wines have been dressed with specially-designed original works (lithographs, xylographies, etchings, silkscreens, linocuts) inspired by the wine of that particular vintage. The print run is the same as the number of bottles produced, and the first hundred labels are signed by the Artist. Each work is only used once, just for the wine of that vintage.

Since 1974 certain Vietti wines have been dressed with specially-designed original works (lithographs, xylographies, etchings, silkscreens, linocuts) inspired by the wine of that particular vintage. The print run is the same as the number of bottles produced, and the first hundred labels are signed by the Artist. Each work is only used once, just for the wine of that vintage. Since the presentation of the 1982 Barolo Villero in 1988, the artist’s labels have been dedicated exclusively to the wines grown on this great vineyard. Read less

This looks just a little fresher than the 82. The nose out of the bottle is crazy, it smells like floral scented candles over pear and frutti di bosco preserves. I've never smelled a wine so intensely floral before wow. In the mouth this is elegant showing very fine integration with a bit of new wood. Not terribly complex or layered yet but rather linear with slightly jammy fruits up front and stony minerality under that leads out the back end to a finish that is a touch drying but offers a lovely and refreshing bitter almond twist on the finale.After 3 hours the nose here is sweet and almost treacly with some coffee crema notes, good hints of florality but nothing like before though that has been replaced by notes of moist earth, smoke, and pollen. In the mouth this is cool and restrained with a lithe, elegant quality to it. Dark and faceted this offers real cut and great integration with a finish that echoes the complicating notes of mineral and beef found on the palate. Just at the beginning of it's drinking window this is very fine stuff 2008-2020
