Vietti Barolo Briacca 1979

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

100% Rose clone At decanting: almost no sediment, light seaweed, rose petal, medicinal, strawberry fondant Medicinal on the nose with hints of celery seed, spicy, dried strawberry, crushed flowers,, and a big roasted veal base note. This is bright in the mouth with high acids supporting a rich core of fruit. Almost silky, on the palate with lots of mineral and spice notes accenting a core of very earthy and savory fruit. This is intense and deep, with a lovely succulent finish. Decidedly not fruit driven but complex and elegant. 91pts

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
