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.

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

Attractive mint, herb, and watermelon aromas greet the nose. On entry one finds tart cherry fruit delivered in a soft, broad style that is wide open today. Easy to drink already, this shows flashes of mushrooms and an earthiness that helps to frame the red fruit, turning fairly tannic on the modest finish. Perhaps a little light but elegant and really quite attractive and freshening. 88pts

Spicy on the nose with notes of salted plum, dark cherry in alcohol with a touch of prune, tar and menthol, This is a little soft on entry though with nice tannic cut to the burnished fruit, that turns spicy and mineral earth rich  on the back end, This is quite clear in the mouth, full of liquory wild strawberry and wild bitter cherry fruit and packed with fruit tannins on the fine aromatic finish with it’s hints of of citrus rind, and sapid, spiky acids that lead to a pop of cherry fruit on the finale. A pretty elegant wine in the making. 93pts

Pale ruby color with garnet hues and powerful aromas of rich, ripe cherries with intricate complexities of spice, tea leaves and rose petals. With strong, rich Tannins, crisp acidity and masculine structure, this age worthy Barolo shows incredible finesse with excellent balance, integration and a long, lingering finish.
