Editorial Reviews for Vietti Barbera d'Alba Tre Vigne
Nice, light mint and herb tones add some detail to the dusty, lightly smoky huckleberry fruit. Lovely acidity and brightness up front, this is appealing right off the bat. There is a lightness and elegance on the palate, yet this has great depth of flavor. The fruit turns aromatic and bright on the back end, picking up accent notes of tree bark, a hint of wood, some candied anise and Chinese five spice all wrapped around the transparent black raspberry fruit. The finish is a touch short and shows a bit of heat but with good complexity and appealing balance. 88pts
2008 dry and full bodied.
The nose showed ripe red berries and slight confectionary notes with spice and sawdust. On the palate, it was dark and spicy with a dollop of fresh acidity and soft textures yielding red and black fruits. The finish was dry, showing medicinal cherry and dark chocolate. It was easy to drink and refreshing.
Not drying at all. Blackberry. Burnt char on back end.
Note from tasting: more fruit forward [than the D'Asti], cherries ["The Other Piedmont" at Bin 105, Lincoln NE, 19 May 2012. My favorite from the tasting, I picked up the 2008, an equal or better vintage]
Sharp somewhat sour nose. Tart flavors initially, currant or cherry...Followed by toast, and a mineral or earthy finish. This wine doesn't feel like a mouthful, and the acidity makes it exciting to drink.
The wine is DOC from Italy and made from Barbera grapes, which is second most produce on Piedmont region. Rich flavor of ripe berries and silky taste and after is very smooth acid. This is not very structured wine and you can feel the deep note of berries and flowers flavor.
Medium color, rustic nose and very earthy. Lots of acid nice wine but I wish it was a bit cleaner and less rustic. Passed on the second bottle.
External Reviews for Vietti Barbera d'Alba Tre Vigne
Shows bright acidity, soft tannins with good integration of oak, good complexity and a lingering cherry finish.
This red wine has a great palate with earthiness, tobacco, leather, cherries and currants. A very pretty Barbera in all senses of the word - in texture and fruit.
Ruby purple color with ripe red cherry aromas and vanilla. With hints of violets the Barbera d'Alba Tre Vigne is slightly rounder in structure than the Barbera d'Asti. On the palate it shows bright acidity, soft tannins with good integration of oak, good complexity and a lingering cherry finish. Food Pairings: Antipasti, rich salads, grilled seasoned vegetables, hearty soups/stews, pastas or with breaded veal, pork, chicken with light sauces.
