Vietti Barbera d'Asti Tre Vigne 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes are selected from young vines, approximately 10 years old, located in Agliano d'Asti. The must fermented in stainless steel tanks for 14 days, after which the wine was aged for 14 months in French oak barrels or Slavonian oak casks and then transferred to stainless steel tanks for two months until bottling. TastingNotesA medium-bodied wine presenting ripe red cherry aromas, notes of mineral and vanilla with refreshing acidity and soft tannins on the finish. FoodPairingThis traditional expression of northern Italy's classic table wine has so much versatility beyond the realm of pasta with pomodoro. Fatty fishes topped with fresh herbs and diced tomatoes feels like a perfect fit, though this wine certainly has the ability to stand up to poulty dishes with a heavy dose of funghi.

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

Description: Ruby purple color with ripe red cherry aromas with hints of mineral and vanilla. A dry, medium bodied red wine with refreshing acidity (making it perfect to pair with food) and soft tannins, the Barbera d’Asti Tre Vigne is well balanced with good integration of oak, good complexity and a finish of more red cherries. Winemaking: Grapes from vineyards in Agliano d’Asti, in the La Crena site with part of the oldest vineyards used for our Cru La Crena and other adjacent vineyards. 4.800 plants per hectare with a yield between 40 and 50 hl/ha. Cold pre-fermentation maceration for 96 hours. The must is kept, for 16 days, in stainless steel tanks at 30-32°C (86-89.6°F). with frequent pumping over and “délestage.” Malolactic fermentation in barriques and following contact with the lees for 6 months. Aging: At the end of the malolactic fermentation, the wine is moved into French oak barrels or Slovenian oak casks for 14 months, then into steel tanks 2 months before bottling.
