Vietti Masseria Barbaresco 1989

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This showed a touch of oxidation on the nose, perhaps a bit of ill storage along the way with notes of beef bouillon dominating the nose yet there were notes of dried herbs, earthy, coffee and smoke adding complexity. In the mouth this was deceptively soft and juicy at first yet remains packed with soft tannin. There is lots of tarry fruit here with good length but that tannin does poke out on the end. It’s a bit blocky and lacks the elegance that one might expect from Barbaresco but still put on a good showing for itself. 2009-2016 88pts

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
