Vietti Barolo Riserva Villero 1982

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Visually we've entered a different period here with deep burnished red black highlights, and a mahogony rim. Sweet on the nose with baking spices, roast meat, earth and floral tones and hints of tomato and mineral. Rich and voluptuous in the mouth, so at peak, ripe tannins, ripe acidity, very tarry fruit that leans toward the strawberry end of the spectrum with complicating notes of church candle. Sinewy muscularity, this is like a dincer, The finish is very precise with good limestony minerality and a finale of gentle sweetness. After 2 hours this has a lovely perfume of roses, spices, stewed fruits and a bit of smoky speck. Great intensity and the layering of perfect maturity. In the mouth this is youthful with a chewy mouthfeel, great minerality with precise cherry pit fruit and an almost austere, angular quality. Firmly in it's drinking window one could ask for a bit more complexity here but texturally this is very appealing. 2008-2020

Vietti:
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

A particularly fresh bottle of Villero, Vietti’s first from the Villero vineyard. This started out with a bit of evolved, cellar floor sandiness over the bright fruits and fine nuanced anise, salted caper and dried floral tones. This rolled across the palate with admirable density and perked up as the wine opened revealing a freshness that was irresistible. The finish grew in length as well and the darker, meaty fruits of the mid-palate yielded to dried cranberry and cherry tones with lovely spice tones. 92pts
