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 was only tasted after it had been open 3-4 hours. Riper fruits on the nose but unlike the 1990 with intact minerality and complicating notes of herb, mint, leather and dried date like fruit. Round and lush in the mouth though there is a bit of unripe bitter tannin here that dominates the finish somewhat. In the mouth the fruit has slightly exotic earth and tea components that are intriguing but this doesn't have the balance of the finest vintages. 2008-2015
