Vietti Nebbiolo Barolo Lazzarito 1989

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

offered up a curious nose that combined rather evolved tones of chocolate, earth, old leather books and salted Japanese plums with a very subtle acetic whiff adding lift and a deceptive freshness. In the mouth this is dark and brooding with great acids but intense tannins. It’s a dark, muscular, very masculine wine with dark fruit edged in bitter fudge and deep licorice tones but it does not have the fruit to outlast these strapping tannins. The finish is very long and lightly medicinal with more licorice but at the same time almost painfully tannic. For the masochists out there! I don’t know if you should drink this now or wait, either way it’ll have issues! 89pts

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
