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

Dark and earthy on the nose with a top note of mineral oil floating over a base of dark carob-inflected cherry fruit. On the palate, this shows great depth and while the oak is obvious, becoming more so with air, there’s a fine base of tight, energetic if brooding dark black cherry and prune fruit here. A powerful wine that shows dry wood tannins on the back end and lacks some textural detail in the mouth, but does exhibit good medicinal and earthy detail topped with toasty oak spice. The finale does show a nice return of dried cherry fruit, opening the door to additional improvement in the bottle, though my gut tells me that this is more likely to fade away than to undergo any fundamental change in the bottle. 91 points

Showing cedar, roast coffee and strong incense aromas when popped and poured, air brings notes of a little sweet carob and earth with hints of mint. Good acids and dusty tannins are still obvious on the palate with focused flavors of fig and wild strawberry on the palate. This is tight and pretty classically structured with jellied cherry and orange emerging on the palate and lovely cherry fruit supported by some tightly packed and sweet wood tannins on the long finish. This looks older than it tastes and is still on the fruity side of its plateau thought it smells a bit more evolved while it still wears its oak quite obviously. 91pts

Vietti's Baroli are distinct in that they're polished and clean on the palate.
