Vietti Nebbiolo Barolo Rocche 1967

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Apon opening this had the very faded appearance of pale onion skin. The nose was dominated by sweet notes of madeirization with scents of limestone, earth, onion powder and panchetta adding dimension. In the mouth there was corresponding sweetness with an echo of strawberry fruit remaining and nice notes of dried orange peel on the finish which turned more spiced with notes of mulling spices and light cherry even. Obviously faded but still intact. @ hours later at the table this had gained sweetness on the nose with a nice combination of secondary and tertiary notes that recalled Chinato with it's blend of herbs, mint, and sweetness. In the mouth this was soft with good flavor intensity supported by the vibrant acidity. Citrussy and herbal in the mouth this is at the very end of it's life but the aromatic and volatile nose was a pleasure to smell

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
